ACTION 2014: Changing Age competition  is a showcase event in which teams display their commercial solution to the posed Societal Challenge.

Please feel free to drop in at any point between  between 14:30 and 16:30.

ACTION is a competition for Newcastle University researchers to address societal challenges through enterprise.  Newcastle University is committed to ensuring its research helps to address some of the key global issues by focussing on selected societal challenge themes (Ageing, Sustainability and Social Renewal). ACTION 2014: Changing Age asks; how can we live better, for longer, in our communities and maintain our quality of life?

Our finalists, four teams of researchers, drawn from all three faculties, have developed commercial solutions to their chosen Ageing challenge following a series of training events.

At the Showcase final each team will produce a trade stand displaying their business idea together with a prototype, video, model or other visual form of their solution. The competition will be judged by an expert panel on both the quality of the team pitch and the strength of their trade stand.

We hope you are able to join us for this exciting event.
