This is your opportunity to spend one and a half days working in cross-disciplinary project groups formulating research proposals that address the problem of keeping people active, independent and well in later life.
The subjects for projects that can be developed at the workshop will be open. However, an example of a cross-disciplinary problem that requires cross-disciplinary answers would be how do people with declining cognitive function cope with things such as the bus system in order to maintain their attendance at an older people’s social club?
An expert panel will judge the various projects and the winning team will be awarded a £10,000 research prize to develop their proposal over the course of one year.
This innovative workshop, led by a professional facilitator, will build upon the questions that emerge during the course of UCL's Ageing Festival and will stimulate new thinking about ageing as well as catalyse new collaborations at UCL. The workshop will be the concluding event of UCL's Ageing Festival
This workshop is convened by Nick Tyler (Director, UCL Crucible and Chadwick Chair of Civil Engineering, Dept of Civil, Environ & Geomatic Engineering, UCL) and Kate Walters (Senior Clinical Lecturer, Primary Care & Population Health, UCL Institute of Epidemiology & Health).
