The Royal Society

The Royal Society will hold a ‘Transforming our Future’ meeting in March 2020, in collaboration with the Invictus Games Foundation, which will bring together leading experts from industry, academia, government and the wider scientific community to discuss recent advances in technologies and treatments that have the real possibility of helping individuals recover from injury across the health spectrum.

The conference will focus upon two broad themes: Our increased understanding of the biology of human health after injury, and especially the impact of trauma on both mental and physical health and the application of innovative new technologies and treatments to help individuals adapt to life-changing injuries. Following the presentations, speakers will discuss what can be achieved in the short- and medium-term, and how such developments should be prioritised and driven forward based upon the experiences of those who have suffered injury.
