What is Senior Living Innovation?
Senior Living Innovation is a major research collaboration between QUT and three leading industry partners that aims to reconceptualise the experience of ageing in Australia with a focus on the senior living industry.
Our goal is to optimise the lifestyles of future seniors by identifying what developers, planners and service providers need to consider in order to meet future demand. Together we are working towards an evidence base that assists our partners to achieve business sustainability through insights, innovations and/or validation for development of housing, products and services.
The research will inform policy development and decision making in the senior living industry by delivering robust evidence, best-practice standards and practical tools for the planning, construction and operation of senior living environments. The resulting evidence base will help industry reduce its costs and increase the quality and personalisation of its services.
The ultimate goal is to facilitate great communities and living environments for senior Australians.
