The United Nations Decade of Healthy Ageing (2021-2030) provides a framework for engagement in international issues on ageing. Its global mission is to improve lives of older people, their families and their communities. This workshop is for researchers who are interested in building their international collaborations and networks with the goal of making their work count in addressing these global issues in healthy ageing.
Who should attend?
A group of UK early career researchers will attend this workshop. All are working on projects funded under Social, Behavioural and Design Research Programme (www.ageing-sbdrp.co.uk) of the UK Healthy Ageing Challenge which is the centrepiece of the UK response to healthy ageing. They are coming to Regina to develop international collaborations and to meet others at similar career stages who are working on similar topics in Healthy Ageing.
This workshop is also open to a maximum of 10 early career scholars based in Canada or other countries outside of the UK. They must be:
Within 10 years of completing their PhD
Involved in research topics compatible with those funded under the UK Healthy Ageing program
Interested in learning more about international collaboration in their area of interest
