Quantum Healthy Longevity: Blueprint for a Healthy Longevity Innovation Mission

Hosted by Collider Health
In-Person & Virtual: 13:30 - 16:45

There are two key global mega challenges for humanity – healthy people and healthy planet. Given unprecedented economic uncertainty, geo-political strife and post-pandemic recovery challenges, it is critical to radically reimagine short, medium and long-term responses at a global, societal and individual level. This session will look at how we can take a quantum leap forward to accelerate healthy people, planet and growth, exploring the economics, the politics and the technologies that can unlock innovation and impact at scale. The case will be made that health cannot be ignored to achieve economic growth in the pro-growth, low regulation strategy of the new UK government. The business and investor community can be harnessed as a major disruptive force to drive the system changes needed to enhance health and minimise health and wellbeing inequalities with healthy longevity at the heart of all policies.
