Education and training of future healthcare professionals, scientists, entrepreneurs and policy makers in the EIT-Health Ageing Brain Summer School is focused on the early hallmarks and diagnosis of normal and abnormal brain ageing, the development of novel effective treatments for neurodegenerative diseases, novel strategies for clinical treatment, the management of elderly care and the development of novel technology to support the daily care of elderly afflicted by dementia and motor disability. The participants of the summer school will be challenged to address these issues with innovative technologies, creative solutions and entrepreneurial skills and by identifying the citizens’ and patients’ need with the ultimate goal of inventing novel solutions for these 21st century problems and bringing these to the market.
