Research Project Keio 2040 (Longevity): Extending Healthy Life Expectancy Project: Establishment of the "KGRI role model for a healthy society with longevity"




This project aims to design a social architecture that interoperably links health care services that utilize various research seeds to achieve a healthy life expectancy in the super-aging population of 2040. We study the problem of realizing the healthcare system from various fields such as medicine, nursing, science and engineering, law, and economics and make proposals for solutions.
