The Assisted Living Action Network holds regular networking seminars to bring together business, healthcare professionals, service user groups and academic researchers to discuss the key issues and areas of unmet need. Our aim is to build up and facilitate new collaborations, to promote knowledge transfer and the uptake of research and create commercial opportunities for products or services.
