Newcastle University’s world-leading initiative on changing age is extending an invitation to the kitchen industry to find out more about the business and research opportunities a combined enterprise could achieve.
In particular, the University is looking for industry partners to collaborate in the building of a working test kitchen.
This kitchen would be a unique opportunity to be involved in the world-renowned research the University excels at in cooperation with older people themselves.
Johnny Grey Studio is holding a discussion and networking event designed to demonstrate to the kitchen industry just what business opportunities are available to forward-thinking companies. This is not about ‘disabled kitchens’, it is an opportunity that covers all sectors of the market by creating products and services that can be used by anyone regardless of age.
