Launched in 2017 with a single goal in mind, the AGE-WELL National Innovation Hub APPTA is putting innovative aging and technology research into the hands of the people who can use it. We know that it takes on average 17 years for research to be translated into action. By bringing together a diverse and dynamic team of young professionals to support an integrated network in research, policy, and innovation, APPTA aims to bridge that gap and mobilize aging and technology research in ways that can improve the lives of older Canadians.
