AWI Model- Transforming science and technology into real world solution

AWI model focuses on urban living, aging and well-being, health across the life course and health systems.  AWI provides the platform to quickly and efficiently  transfer scientific research and technology breakthroughs to real world applications and solutions that will transform lives, families, communities and populations. 

The key to the AWI platform is how it “connects the dots” among the various stakeholders, including universities & research institutions, private industry, the technology startup community, elder care associations, housing developers, industry groups, foundations, and government agencies.  This unique integrated approach cultivates innovation and technology, addresses population needs around aging, builds & strengthens companies and creates new jobs that will strengthen the economy, and can provide a clear competitive advantage for our private industry partners to emerge as global leaders in transformative healthcare, smart home technologies, connected medical devices and advanced public health policy.
