Japan is the fastest aging society in the world. Therefore, it is a pioneer when it comes to addressing the challenge of long-term care. This symposium intends to enhance the exchange of ideas and research results on the management of long-term care in Japan and Germany, between practitioners and scholars from both countries. We thus create a forum that enables a transfer of knowledge between Japan and Germany as well as between research and practice.

The symposium focuses specifically on how to develop and secure qualified personnel in long-term care in the face of a growing staff shortage. With Japan being a forerunner in the advancement of technology in long-term care, the symposium also deals with the use of technology and the power of innovation to facilitate independent living of care receivers and improve care work.
