Mr. Hayato Shimizu

Mayor,Saitama City

The City of Saitama has worked through partnerships linking government and the private sector to promote the use of next-generation vehicles such as electric vehicles and fuel cell vehicles and to develop infrastructure to support their operation since 2009 in the form of the “E-KIZUNA” project. In 2011, the city was designated a “Next-generation Automobile and Smart Energy Special District,” and it undertook a series of initiatives to improve resilience through collaboration with private-sector companies, universities, and other partners, for example by developing facilities that are capable of supplying hydrogen and other types of energy during normal times as well as in times of disaster. In 2015, it launched the Smart City Saitama Model, an initiative in the city’s Misono subcenter to build platforms that go beyond the environmental and energy fields to encompass the key areas that make up regional society, including housing, food, medicine, health, transportation, and tourism.

“Smart living technologies for the ageing population – case Finland”

Thursday, October 3 12:50-13:301F Seminar venue(3)

Mr. Jussi Rönty

Project manager, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd

Finland has one of the oldest populations in Europe. The share of over-65-year-olds of the population will increase from the current 20 percent to 26 percent by 2030 and to 29 percent by 2060. Finland has begun seeking new ways to respond to the needs for care and support of older people with declined functional ability. Developing technology that enables older people to continue living in their own homes and cope on their own is a key goal from the perspective of age policy strategies. Technology can help older people to maintain their independence and autonomy. It can also enable them to build and maintain social relationships and stay active in society. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has been developing technological solutions for the needs of the ageing population since the 1980s. Research initially focused on products and devices. Today, VTT’s competitive edge bases on its comprehensive and holistic technology and service expertise.
