UNBC, AGE-WELL, Northern Health, CTAAN partner on technology for the aging

November 27, 2020
The University of Northern British Columbia will be the host for the Centre for Technology Adoption for Aging in the North, a new AGE-WELL National Innovation Hub. The hub will be led in partnership with AGE-WELL, Northern Health, and The Centre for Technology Adoption for Aging in the North (CTAAN). The partnership will support the development, testing, and implementation of new technologies that can help those aging in northern or rural communities live independently. “The Centre for Technology Adoption for Aging in the North aligns with and supports UNBC’s vision to transform lives and communities in northern B.C. and beyond,” says UNBC Interim President Geoff Payne. “As the host institution, CTAAN will allow UNBC to deepen our ties with AGE-WELL and Northern Health and forge new research partnerships.” UNBC (BC)
