Technology for an aging population
In his speech, Magnus Isaksson focused on how technology can help solve the global challenges of an aging population. In 2050, the percentage of people over 80 will have increased significantly.
“At the University of Gävle, we conduct cutting-edge research on creating opportunities for the sick and the elderly to continue to lead an active life even if they lose some of their mobility,” Magnus Isaksson says.
Research teams from Gävle have collaborated with Amity and a few other Indian universities regarding research on electromagnetism, on microwave radar technology and also within robotics.
“Today, the University has many international research collaborations as well as collaborations within third-cycle education. This honorary professorship confirms that in general the University of Gävle conducts world-class research,” Magnus Isaksson says.
