There is a strong interest in getting a generic community platform running, and from that platform, it is suggested that there should be a link to a resource that assembles age-related data in a crowd-sourcing way supported by ontologies (Ontology) as well as links to the Marketplace and the a Who's Who.

It is appreciated that there is positive response and agreement for going in this direction. Clearly, there is a need for approaching such an endeavour. Sooner or later it needs to be done anyway. There is no other way we can cope with the increasing amount of biological data on aging and to solve all the age-related changes in a systematic fashion. There is no time to wait, better now than later! Preparation must start today.

It is proposed to identify selected centralized places:

Generic Community Platform

  • Assembly of age-related data in a crowd-sourced Ontology way
  • Marketplace / Funding possibilities
    • IARP (International Aging Research Portfolio)
    • EIP (European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing)
      • Register to give more weight to biology of Aging in the European Union
      • Forum discussion about Research topics and identification of potential collaborators
      • Funding (requires registration)
  • Who's Who oriented for collaboration
    • WhosWho on gerontology
    • Need to know for each person if they are strongly looking for collaboration and which type
  • Online community video conferences at any time
    • Longevity Island with Second Life created jointly with the International longevity Alliance
    • Continues Skype longevity meeting (contact: edebonneuil)
      • Dmitri Shytikov (immunology of aging young-old transfer of stem cells and blood) presented on the first meeting to see with the audience for potential collaborations
      • Daniel Wuttke will present on the Saturday January 12th about Linking Researchers to Solve Aging
    • 2nd Live and Skype will probably coexist due to the large use of Skype

The marketplace is some kind of forum where ideas, thoughts and services are exchanged and funding identified.

Be sure that you can count on Heales, the International Longevity Alliance and other connected organizations to help promote those centralized places and help create a strong community of aging research throughout the world!
