The international conference “New Technologies: Opportunity or Challenge for the Aging Population?” is the third from a series organized in the frame of the long-term (eng)aging! project. The project reflects the crucial importance of a society-wide debate regarding the topic of demographic change and aging population, and aims to highlight these issues, stimulate a constructive discussion, and help to create conditions that will make use of demographic change for the benefit of societies. It consists of a series of panel discussions, public seminars, roundtables and annual international conference focusing on topics related to the demographic change and the population aging. The (eng)aging! project is organized by KEYNOTE, a well-established consultancy in cooperation with Active Aging Center, a non-governmental organization. KEYNOTE specializes in organizing conferences and events that lead to cutting-edge international encounters, bring new ideas to life, and facilitate a unique networking experience. In its projects KEYNOTE focuses principally on politics, international relations, security, civil society, new social trends, and business. Active Aging Center’s long term goal is to promote a societal debate on population aging and its impacts. Active Aging Center aims to improve quality of life of the elderly, their social status and intergenerational relations, to contribute to a change of the negative stereotypes about seniors present in public discourses and to raise employment rates of the generation 55+.
