How long will we live in the future? Longevity - New technologies for healthy ageing

On the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the University of St.Gallen, the Public Programme is Programme is organising an extraordinary anniversary series. Within this series, our six Schools are organising panel discussions on current topics, bringing together students students, alumni, experts and interested parties. The aim is to use intergenerational dialogue in relation to the past, present and future with the help of multi-perspectivity.

It is an age-old dream of mankind to live forever. However, if ageing is primarily associated with illness, the dream can become a nightmare. Research into longevity is focussing on extending the "healthy lifespan". A megatrend that not only opens up exciting business opportunities for many entrepreneurs and investors, but also has far-reaching consequences for our society. What if we could choose our own age and gender? How can we improve our business performance by living healthier lives? Young and old benefit from the latest findings of longevity research. Learn exciting facts from experts in computer science, neurosciences and management and be inspired by the latest developments! 

After the event, you are cordially invited to an aperitif.
