The Centre for Ageing Research and Development in Ireland (CARDI) today (Friday 12 December 2014) launched the 2014 edition of A Picture of Ageing Research in Ireland, North and South. This publication provides a snapshot of the ageing research landscape across the island of Ireland.
By 2030 one in five people on the island of Ireland will be 65 years or older. As the population ages research into ageing and older people is vital to help plan for healthier and more active later lives for everyone.
Academic institutions across the island are engaged in a wide range of research programmes and projects relating to ageing. Ageing is increasingly viewed as a research priority for these institutions and the island of Ireland is gaining recognition as a place of excellence for ageing research.
This publication provides an overview of research relating to ageing being carried out in their various third level institutions in Ireland, North and South. It combined these profiles with information about a selection of major collaborative research projects and CARDI’s research funding activities to produce an update of a previous directory published in 2010.
A Picture of Ageing Research 2014 illustrates the continued growth and quality of research being carried out in a wide range of disciplines by a growing community of researcher in Ireland, North and South.
CARDI Director Dr Roger O’Sullivan says, “We are delighted to present this publication which captures the innovative and high quality nature of ageing research being carried out by researchers in Ireland, North and South. Ageing research is vital to providing a valuable evidence base for building a better future for our ageing populations”.
