Eric Kihlstrom

As interim Director of the Healthy Ageing Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, I work across industry, Government, 3rd sector and academia to unlock opportunities that come with demographic changes. We are launching a £98 million challenge fund to demonstrate innovation that creates economic value at scale and demonstrates the ability to support "years full of life" which match the gift of the extension of peoples' lives.

I am a former Digital Transformation Strategy Director with 30+ years of delivering impactful innovation to multi-national corporations as well as rapid growth start-ups. I was part of pioneering team to disrupt telecoms industry in the nineties and continue to deliver transformation via people-centred, analytics based innovation.
