For the 2019 ARISE Think Tank Roundtable, ARISE addressed the opportunities for new-age technologies to tackle the challenges presented by the ageing population in Asia and around the wor​ld. The goal was to identify business opportunities and policy mechanisms that can address the critical needs of older adults. The specific focus of the roundtable discussion was revolve around gerontechnology - an interdisciplinary field that combines gerontology, the scientific study of ageing research, development and deployment of products, and services to meet the aspirations and needs of the ageing population. In an ageing society like Singapore where the government is preparing the nation for a digital revolution, it is increasingly important to chart out the prevalence, challenges and policies related to gerontechnology within the context of the Smart Nation Initiative in Singapore.

The invitees were a mix of leaders from business (for example, technology companies, financial services, medical information technology companies), philanthropic foundations, academics from the local & international universities, government agencies and policy makers. The reflection, outcome discussion and recommendation points was published as a policy brief. The aim of the brief was to highlight insights to government policymakers who are instrumental in formulating and influencing policy on the ageing issues in Singapore.
