Digital Health & Ageing. A regional workshop dedicated to the R&I landscape in Japan 
SAVE THE DATE: IDIH Week 2022 – 21-24 March 2022


The project IDIH – International Digital Health Cooperation for Preventive, Integrated, Independent and Inclusive Living brings together prominent organisations from EU and five Strategic Partner Countries, i.e. Canada, China, Japan, South Korea and the USA with the aim to promote and increase international collaboration to advance digital health to support active and healthy ageing through innovation. Thanks to the IDIH project partner from Japan, Sawarabi Group, IDIH has been successfully involving Japanese stakeholders in the project, and has also gathered 4 experts in the field of AHA from Japan in the Digital Health Transformation Forum of the project: Dr Takao Tashiro, the Open University of Japan; Ms Kanoko Oishi, Mediva; Dr Hirohisa Hirukawa, NovusCare; and Dr Satoko Hotta, Keio University. 

As part of its activities, IDIH will be holding a 4-day online international event, IDIH Week 2022, dedicated to researchers, innovators, care providers and users' associations dealing with Digital Health for Active and Healthy Ageing (AHA). Three sessions will be dedicated to Information, Networking & Matchmaking, and Co-creation among all the key-stakeholders of digital solutions for AHA in Europe, as well as in Japan, China, Canada, South Korea, and USA. A key-novelty of this 2022 edition will be two Regional Workshops dedicated to the R&I landscape around Digital Health & Ageing, respectively in Japan and USA.
