Are you curious about how to age gracefully? A new innovation lab for healthy aging at Israeli Ben-Gurion University is dedicated to helping us all age with health and dignity.

Israel21c tells us more:

Israel’s first Innovation Lab for Healthy Aging has been launched in Beersheva, simulating the challenges in the everyday living environment of senior citizens in order to inspire solutions.

The new project is backed by a $5 million investment and has a partnership with Sheba Medical Center in Ramat Gan to test its approaches and technologies.

The Innovation Lab for Healthy Aging is jointly sponsored by the Center for Digital Innovation (CDI) Negev, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), the National Insurance Institute of Israel, the Beersheva municipality, the Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) and the Amal & Beyond Group.

“In 10 years, Beersheva will become the center of senior citizen-focused research and innovation,” CDI founder and CEO Ziv Ofek said.
