A powerful collaboration of shared strategic interests and common endeavour to address the biggest challenges and opportunities in ageing.
Our next HAIC event takes place on Wednesday 25 August 2021.
This exclusive event is being delivered in collaboration with The UKRI Healthy Ageing Challenge, which launches new grant funding as part of their Designed for Ageing competition in September 2021.
Welcome to Scotland’s Healthy Ageing Innovation Cluster (HAIC), which is facilitated by the Digital Health & Care Innovation Centre, on behalf of key partners including the Scottish Government's Technology Enabled Care Team, The Digital Office for Local Government, Scottish Enterprise, Highlands & Islands Enterprise, Enterprise Europe Network and the European Connected Health Alliance.
We are a powerful collaboration of shared strategic interests from policy, health, housing and care, enterprise in Scotland and Internationally with a common endeavour.
Our aims are to:
- Create a collective of shared interests, expertise and skills
- Share information and support knowledge exchange
- Build collaborations that are greater than the sum of the individual parts
- Seek and solve demand-led challenges
- Identify funding/ host challenge opportunities
The cluster comprises representatives from Civic organisations, Academic institutions, Citizens, Commercial industry, Healthcare professionals/ Care providers and the Third sector.
Our cluster builds on the principles of Ageing 2.0, which is an international, interdisciplinary, and intergenerational community that strives to address the biggest challenges and opportunities in ageing. To date, HAIC has been focusing on identifying, and giving a Scottish context to, opportunities within the Aging 2.0 Grand Challenges.
We work with our partners to promote positive approaches to healthy ageing, using digital solutions and services to transform care. We have a wealth of knowledge, learning and experience to share through the membership of our cluster.

The Digital Health & Care Innovation Centre (DHI) delivered a stimulating Healthy Aging workshop at TEDxGlasgow 2019. It was well chaired and generated a thought-provoking discussion amongst the groups with a diverse range of views and suggestions. The materials provided were a really innovative way of facilitating a discussion.
