The burgeoning Longevity industry is gaining vital public sector involvement, with the industry starting to be embraced by politicians and parliamentarians – especially with the 2019 launch of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Longevity – according to the latest report by the Aging Analytics Agency (AAA).
The agency’s Top-100 Longevity Leaders is a 140-page open-access report that aims to provide readers with a clearer understanding of the types of private and public-sector professionals directing the rapidly rising industry as a whole, listing the top 100 individuals influencing the direction of the entire multifaceted industry, and measuring the leadership impact of each individual in their respective field.
These leaders are additionally classified by the type of activity in which each spends the majority of their time and efforts: Entrepreneurship, Research and Academia, or Publicity.
The overall purpose of the report is to understand where the Longevity Industry’s sources of influence lie, to help promote establishing efficient links between sectors in order to achieve a healthy and mature global Longevity Industry.
“It is apparent that the next roadblock in the further development of the global Longevity Industry will be surpassed only if the largest institutions active in the domains of politics, science, and finance jointly recognise Healthy Longevity as a substantial opportunity and a solution to existing challenges, and pull together in the same direction,” said the AAA.
“Longevity has already achieved mainstream recognition and growth in the areas of media, science, and industry. Government – and the development of tangible national development strategies that emphasize healthspan extension and the paradigm shift from treatment to prevention represents the next great frontier for the topic of Longevity. Progress in biomedicine already has the global talent, resources, and discipline it needs to continue to grow.”
“Therefore, the next major effort should be ensuring that the diverse forms of leadership described in the report continue work in each other’s favour, with an ongoing increase in government involvement, to execute the transformation of the problem of ageing into the opportunity of Healthy Longevity.”
Innovation Warehouse wants to hear from early-stage technology companies looking to break into this exciting field, including products and services that tap into the ‘Silver Economy’, which includes, among others, independent living, Longevity and Geroscience.
