Around 90 people came when SPF Seniors Skåne district arranged a conference on welfare technology and artificial intelligence, AI, on March 20. It was specifically addressed to the members of the municipal and central pension boards in Skåne.

The CASE research network participated with the chairman of its user board "Intressentrådet", Stig Ålund, and three researchers. Docent Gunilla Carlsson from the profile area Proactive Ageing lectured on trust in welfare technology. And PhD student Samantha Svärdh from the research group Applied Gerontology addressed the consequences of welfare technology. Håkan Jönson, professor at School of Social Work in Lund and also a researcher in the profile area Proactive Ageing, spoke about ageing, power and status.

We received 32 notifications from people who want to know more about and get involved in our new research project TWIST, which we are starting up and which deals with trust in welfare technology, says Gunilla Carlsson.

The conference took place in Eslöv's citizen's house, so that as many people as possible from all over Skåne could participate. The lectures were also about the therapies of the future, where Skåne University Hospital is at the forefront. The day ended with group work on how to continue working in the municipalities.
