International Symposium

The Silver Market Phenomenon: Business Opportunities and Responsibilities in the Ageing Society

 

02.10.2008 - 04.10.2008

 

Immer mehr Unternehmen entdecken den Wachstumsmarkt „Alter“ als neue Geschäftschance. Japan wird vielfach als Vorreiter im Bereich „Silbermarkt“ gesehen. Allerdings handelt es sich hier keineswegs um ein homogenes Marktsegment. Darin waren sich die Experten aus verschiedenen Ländern, die bei diesem internationalen Symposium an der United Nations University in Tokio zusammen kamen, einig. Auf der in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Institut für Technologie- und Innovationsmanagement (TIM) der Technischen Universität Hamburg-Harburg (TUHH) veranstalteten DIJ-Konferenz wurden die Herausforderungen und Chancen des "Silbermarkts" sowie unternehmerische Verantwortung ausführlich diskutiert. Den Kick-off des Symposiums bildete das DIJ Forum am 02.10., bei dem Ko-Organisator Cornelius Herstatt die Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede in den Seniorenmärkten in Deutschland und Japan aufzeigte. Gleichzeitig wurde auch die Neuerscheinung The Silver Market Phenomenon: Business Opportunities in an Era of Demographic Change der Öffentlichkeit vorgestellt. Das detailierte Programm, einzelne Präsentationen sowie eine Videoaufnahme der gesamten Konferenz können auf dieser Seite unten abgerufen werden.

Das Symposium wurde gefördert von: The Obayashi Foundation, Allianz Life Insurance Japan Ltd., Siemens, Asahi Medical Technologies Ltd., The Murata Science Foundation und TÜV Rheinland Japan Ltd.

Unterstützt von: Deutsche Industrie- und Handeskammer in Japan (DIHK), Deutsche Seniorenliga (DSL), Conference for the Promotion of Monodzukuri, Cybernics:fusion of human, machine and information systems, International Mature Marketing Network (IMMN), The 21st Century Program, The Science of Institutional Management of Technology (SIMOT), Tokyo Institute of Technology, TheMatureMarket.com, United Nations University, Waseda Marketing Forum (WMF) und World Demographic Association (WDA).
