The Plug-in: Influencers of modern ageing


COTA SA proudly introduced The Plug-in to our members and friends in 2017. This followed the Premier's launch of SA's Ageing Well industry focused on world class innovation and technologies designed for older people, including a world class Living Laboratory network.

The Plug-in is, very literally, a community of older people who are willing to be "plugged in" to research and innovation about services and products targeting older people to create a better future for modern ageing.

For older people, it is an opportunity to be matched with opportunities to influence that reflect their circumstances, profiles and interests. This enables involvement in the innovation cycle, imagining, developing, trialling, taking to market, and potentially teaching peers to use emerging inventions.

For industry and innovators, The Plug-in is an efficient way to access well-matched end users at scale that are skilled to provide valuable insights to the design and function of a product, service or research.
