“Agenomics” coined by the Study Group of Agenomics in Japan promotes the fostering of an innovative and sustainable ageing society. Ageing society has a major impact on many countries for example, in terms of workforce availability, employment, life work balance, life after retirement welfare services, pension costs and care of parents or parents-in-law. Thus, the 1st Working Women in an Ageing Society (WWAS) international conference will not only analyze strategies employed by the U.S., Japan, Singapore, Holland and England to address these kinds of issues but also to stimulate the exchange of innovative ideas to promote a better ageing society for all. Through academic presentations, panel discussion, poster presentations, business exhibitor seminars, relay talks by role models, a Glocal Café and an Open Forum, explore initiatives in this host region to advance active participation of seniors and women in society.
