Owing to the global increasing trend of life expectancy and low birth rate, population aging is widespread across the world. Gerontechnology is a fresh hope, which does not only promote independence among older adults but also enhances their quality of life.
With the great success of the First International Conference on Gerontechnology held in 2020, the coming conference will continue to serve as an interdisciplinary platform for local and overseas researchers, professionals, service providers, and users to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the development and use of gerontechnology. COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the global population in drastic ways, especially the older adults who are most susceptible to the infection. It is important to create opportunities to promote healthy aging in the era of COVID-19. Gerontechnology has played a vital role in helping them weather the storm during challenging times.

Our aims
1. Promote and enhance the understanding of gerontechnology among health care professionals;

2. Provide an interdisciplinary platform for local and overseas researchers, academics, service providers, and users to present and discuss their gerontechnological experience during the COVID-19 pandemic and the most recent innovations and trends in gerontechnology
