The 4th international conference was organized in the frame of the long-term (eng)aging! project, which aims to foster society-wide debate about the accelerating demographic change and population aging. The project aims to stimulate a constructive discussion about these trends and to look for ways to make use of them for the benefit of the society.
The 2021 edition was held fully virtually.
Using modern technology can dramatically improve the lives of older people. However, the technological progress also comes with a dark side as older people can be at risk due to insufficient technological skills and a higher vulnerability to abuse.
