The Centre for Elder Research introduces our 2017 Ideathon!!
Tech to Connect: Supporting Optimal Aging

As our population ages, there are unique challenges and opportunities that can be addressed through the effective use of new technologies. We invite you to be creative, to get involved and to propose innovative technology-based ideas and solutions that can help older adults age optimally through social connectedness.

In addition to prizes, the individuals or teams behind the winning submissions will have an opportunity to turn their ideas into research and design projects in partnership with the team at the Sheridan Centre for Elder Research.

The submission deadline is September 22nd – completed proposals must be sent to by midnight (EST). For more details, including submission guidelines, please see this flyer.
