European regions are increasingly affected by significant ageing of their population as part of a more general process of
demographic change. Saxony-Anhalt is no exception to this rule. In this context, the event will showcase excellent
research projects from Saxony-Anhalt tackling issues related to innovative healthcare, demographic change, assistive
technology and robotics. On the basis of the research presented at the event, a panel discussion with representatives of
the European Commission and regional government involving the audience will centre on using excellent regional
research as a basis for international projects to exchange knowledge and best practices to tackle European societal
challenges. This debate will also seek to take into account possible synergies with other EU initiatives and programmes.
