How to Work with AgeLab

There are three ways to engage AgeLab:


Members contribute to the Lab’s overall research agenda and gain access to a variety of activities to learn of trends, insights & innovations in consumer behavior, technology, business and public policy. Membership is renewed annually

Benefits include: invitation to Lab-only roundtables with other Members, first access to research-in-progress white papers, and a one-day Innovation Studio engaging AgeLab researchers and Member company employees in the exploration of a topic or problem of interest to both the Member company and AgeLab.



Sponsors collaborate on a specific project in their business or policy area to develop better understanding, product or service innovation and intellectual property. Length of Sponsorship is dependent upon the specific requirements of the research project, typically 1 to 2 years.

Benefits include: Selected Member Benefits as described above as well as specific outputs resulting from a defined research project based upon a negotiated research agreement that may result in Intellectual Property.



Partners commit to a multi-year agreement and vision on a specified theme seeking market, policy, or thought leadership and intellectual property. Partners commit for at least two-plus years.

Benefits include: All Member Benefits, a long-term commitment with thought leadership exclusivity in a defined area, limited AgeLab visiting researcher privileges, specific research outputs and where applicable Intellectual Property based upon a negotiated research agreement.
