Aging & Technology Policy Lab (고령사회 기술복지 정책 실험실)

How to utilize technology and develop technology policy to improve the quality of life of people in need, esp. older adults and people with disabilities

The AT Policy Lab is the first lab with a focus on aging, social welfare, and technology policy at KAIST. The AT Policy Lab’s research focuses on examining the mechanisms of social problems related to population aging and new technologies and providing policy analysis and recommendations on the issues.  We do research and seek solutions to solve current and emerging social problems to promote evidence-based policy-making, with special interest in improving the quality of life of marginalized people such as older people, people with disabilities, ethnic minorities, and people under poverty.
