Abstract

This report is a working paper of a European Technology Assessment Network (ETAN) expert working group. The groups' task was to prepare a report in a form appropriate for discussion with policy makers and other stakeholders. It addresses the issue of population ageing, which is seen as one of the main challenges modern socio-economic and policy systems face. However, there are areas of opportunity where innovation may simultaneously mitigate the economic problems of an ageing population, enhance the contributions and quality of life of older people, and create new economic and business opportunities. The purpose of this report is:

- To identify areas of opportunity, where innovation is essential to address the challenges and science and technology policy has an important role to play in stimulating and fostering innovation;
- To elaborate on the objectives, scope and content of such policies.
