About this event 

The EMERGENCE Healthcare Technologies Network+ would like to invite all members of the consortium, along with those who are interested in becoming part of the network, to attend a full day of networking activities focused on the challenges associated with successfully embedding robots into the daily lives of people with lived experience of frailty. It's time for a big conversation about how we can work together to bring about change and influence a shift in thinking.

The event is open to all individuals with an interest in learning more about this important question, academics with research interests in this field, technologists and roboticists who are working to develop technology for this group, health and social care professionals working with older people, people with lived experiences of frailty or caring for individuals with frailty and any other interested members of the public. 

During the day we will consider different perspectives, hear key speaker views, listen to our funded project teams talk about their experiences, learn about the current research in this area, and take time to have conversations about our response while building new connections and collaborations that we can take forward into future work.

We are delighted to announce the following keynote speakers:

Zoe Clarke EC Service Lead for the Assistive Technology Team at Barnsley Hospital NHS Trust

Professor Adam Gordon Professor of the Care of Older People, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences, University of Nottingham 

This will be an in-person event at The University of Nottingham, hosted by the Ingenuity Centre on the Jubilee Campus.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided
