We will be holding our 4th annual Future of Ageing Conference on Thursday 29th November.

Our Future of Ageing conference have been growing each year with the 2017 Conference seeing over 40 speakers, including Dr Pol Vandenbroucke (Vice President Medical Strategy, Pfizer), John McTernan (Senior Vice President, PSB & Former Political Secretary to Tony Blair), Dr Eileen Burns (President, British Geriatrics Society) and Dr Anna Dixon (Chief Executive, Centre for Ageing Better), and with a focus on a variety of important issues:

  • How can we maximise the Economic Contribution of older people?
  • Whether Anti-microbial resistance is a threat to longevity – and what can we do about it?
  • Whether the future will be less of more ageist?
  • How can the housing industry innovate for tomorrow's older consumers?
  • How can we save the NHS?
  • Are there more inequalities in a world of austerity?
  • Filling the skills gaps: Migration, more older workers, or both?
  • Can we automate care?
  • Can technology drive innovation in pensions, health and care?
  • The future of the end: Living forever or dying in style

A full agenda including the list of speakers from the 2017 conference, along with the presentation slides from the event are available to view here:

ILC-UK are once again looking for someone to speak for 10 minutes on the plenary platform in front of 250 people at our annual Future of Ageing Conference (29th November, London).

“Auto-enrolment has successfully led to millions more saving each month towards a pension, but the Committee is right to call for action to get people saving more. We are pleased they support our recommendations to consider automatic escalation of pension contributions for some individuals, and we agree that a strategy is needed to automatically-enrol the self-employed."

Dr Brian Beach, Senior Research Fellow at ILC-UK and who gave oral evidence to the Committee, welcomes the Committee’s call for stronger action by Government and EHRC and says it’s crucial that employers understand what ageism really is.

“The latest Fiscal Sustainability Report makes it very clear that we are facing an uncertain future. Demographic pressures are set to continue to dominate the agenda, with health, pension and adult social care spending all set to rise as a proportion of total GDP."
