Working Carers to Participate in Third Knowledge Exchange Seminar
The third Knowledge Exchange Project (KEP) Care in Business seminar to be held on Wednesday 14 September will actively involve carers who have to juggle a working life with caring responsibilities and find themselves caring from a distance.
The Care in Business project is led by Swansea University in partnership with Bangor, Cardiff, Glamorgan and Glyndwr Universities, focusing on Living, Care and New Technologies. The KEP has been supported by EU convergence funding.
The project aims to create a shared vision of care and explore how new technologies and emerging trends in the ICT sector can be exploited innovatively to meet both care and carer needs.
Speaking about the third seminar, Dr. Sarah Hillcoat-Nallétamby from Swansea University’s Centre for Innovative Ageing said:
“We are looking forward to taking a far more user focused approach to this seminar, actively engaging with working carers and discussing their practical day to day needs in caring remotely.”
The third of five seminars will offer a valuable opportunity for business, academia, carer organisations, older people and most importantly working carers, to work together to consider new innovations within an increasingly important and growing market.
