Presentation of the study “Meran on the Move”
Today, we know better than ever that ageing is not an unchangeable and unmanageable process: the way people get old has to do with the development and the culture of a society, its medical knowledge, technological progress and health system. In particular, technological progress and digitalization have fundamentally changed the conditions of ageing. Our society is getting older, while feeling younger. In medicine, we speak of the beginning of the age of transformation medicine, in which the goal is not the healing of a sick body, but the improvement of a healthy body. How do we live and age healthily in the era of digitalization? How is the ageing process changing? And how can a city promote a healthy lifestyle and increase the health consciousness of its inhabitants?
The Center for Advanced Studies of Eurac Research and the Municipality of Meran/Merano invite to the International Conference “Being Healthy in a Digital World: How we will better live in the future. Presentation of the study Meran on the Move” on April 12, 2019 in the Meran’s Pavillion des Fleurs. In keynote speeches, talks and a panel discussion, questions related to health in the era of digital transformation will be explored. The first results of a study on health commissioned by the municipality of Merano will be presented. The event is free and takes place in three languages (German, Italian, and English) with simultaneous translation.
