What’s Next Canada 2020: Aging + Brain Health Innovation

March 8, 2020 - March 11, 2020

The second annual What’s Next Canada, hosted by the Baycrest-led Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation and co-produced by Mary Furlong & Associates, is the industry’s premier event for networking, collaboration and learning opportunities.

The conference takes a deep dive into the innovations, industry, and lived experience of the aging and brain health space. We bring together a unique blend of thought leaders, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, healthcare providers, and companies from around the world in discussions and demonstrations of groundbreaking innovations in the longevity sector.

This year’s theme: Aging, Medtech + Mental Health

  • Meet leading startups and established companies who are successfully pushing the boundaries of ‘possible’ in targeting aging and brain health challenges
  • Learn the ABCs of commercializing, adopting, and scaling up innovations
  • Hear the authentic perspectives of older adults and caregivers, whose perspectives are vital for innovators solving real-world problems and solutions
  • Vote for your favourite innovation at the 2020 Pitch Competition for the CABHI Innovation and People’s Choice Awards, and learn more about the latest technologies in aging and brain health – including artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual reality, and more

In concert with Baycrest’s 30th Annual Rotman Research Institute Conference held on March 8 -10, 2020, a research conference with our sister organization, What’s Next Canada will also attract opportunities for innovators to form transformative collaborations with renowned researchers, clinicians, healthcare providers and corporate executives in the seniors’ sector.
