WHY?

Longevity International is a social enterprise bringing together start-ups, industry, academic and governmental stakeholders under one umbrella to provide a unified voice and coordinating vehicle for positive discourse and change to ensure the ‘longevity dividend’ is accessible to everyone. We are the secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Longevity in the UK.

Ageing represents a problem through a deficit-model lens- but could be one of the most promising opportunities of the 21st century if managed through an asset-based paradigm. The UK Government stands to either suffer or benefit from the growing ageing demographic shift or ‘Silver Tsunami’, depending on how it responds.   Failure to reformulate the fundamental ways in which it deals with societal ageing will result in the government continuing to shoulder a growing economic burden.  However, if it can achieve a shift in healthcare from treatment to prevention (including use of genomics and advanced biomedicine), support positive ‘age-tech’ that meets citizens’ aspirations for a longer life, and keep the working population fit and functional for longer, the UK can turn a looming economic bust into a thriving socioeconomic boom, delivering increased healthspan, a growing national GDP and better health and wealth for its citizens.

 Our first geographic focus is the UK

The UK is a global leader in life sciences, financial services, and technology and the UK Government has made substantial economic and policy commitments in the area of healthy ageing.

A number of organisations have joined forces to support Longevity International.  Together these organisations represent the cutting edge of research, policy and innovation in healthy longevity.

Founding Partners

Biogerontology Research Foundation

The Biogerontology Research Foundation has been constituted as a charity in the UK to support the application of our knowledge of the mechanisms of ageing to the relief of disability, suffering and disease in old age. In 2017 the BGRF forged a partnership with the Oxford University Scientific Society (OUSS) to jointly engage in and support ageing research-oriented public outreach and education activities within Oxford University, including the release of the Longevity Podcast by BGRF Director of Public Outreach and Education and OUSS President Jack Stefaniak, featuring analysis of the latest research in geroscience and interviews with the field’s key thought leaders.

ARK (Ageing Research at King’s College London)

Ageing Research at King's (ARK) is a cross-faculty multidisciplinary consortium of investigators which brings together scholarship and research in ageing in several complementary areas. ARK represents King’s world class excellence for research on the biology of ageing, from the basic mechanisms in biogerontology to clinical translation and the social impact of ageing.The primary purpose of ARK is to enhance multidisciplinary research collaborations within King’s to better understand the mechanisms of ageing and improving health-span. As ageing consists of complex systems at the level of biology, psychology and society, in order to understand the processes of ageing and the nature of old age itself, it is important to bring together learning and research from a number of key disciplines.

Future Care Capital

Future Care Capital (FCC) is a charity aiming to facilitate and stimulate a national debate around health and social care provision. As a provider of insight and analysis, FCC uses campaigns, policy papers and a supporting programme of events to inform public policy. FCC also has a keen interest in how technology can transform health and social care outcomes, a focus of its policy activities and wider partnership work.  Alongside policy and advocacy work, FCC aims to support innovative ventures, acting as a specialist start-up funder and investor through its separate Innovation Fund. This venture capital fund (FCC Ventures) is a subsidiary of FCC and is currently fundraising. The Fund will invest in early stage high-tech health and care companies; the long-term vision is to create an evergreen fund. The overarching philosophy of the Fund is to drive positive societal benefit and its key focus areas are: digital health, assisted living, services (with a high tech, high growth angle) and Class I medical devices (the least invasive). FCC believes that focused investment in these areas can, if targeted effectively, work across traditional boundaries to deliver improved health and social care outcomes.
