With an ageing global population, research about ageing and older people is increasingly important.
This one day conference aims to showcase the range of research among postgraduate and early career researchers from across disciplines taking ageing as its focus. We welcome researchers interested in and working on ageing and older age from all disciplines and schools.
The ageing population has been rapidly increasing its number all around the world. Since then, multiple disciplines have been trying to achieve insights of it. Yet frequently, studies were only conducted in one area with little consideration for the transitions or patterns over time. In this context, the search of understanding it in a longitudinal perspective is essential.
This conference aim is to create a space to share research about the ageing population and life course trajectories, considering the diversity of disciplines and perspectives available. It aims to welcome and foster research trying to understand ageing populations and demographic change, active ageing in place, health and wellbeing, age stratification and inequalities in later life.
