In 2012, Dublin City University developed Ten Principles for an Age-Friendly University and has been leading a global age-friendly university initiative. Through modest growth, a global network has grown to over twenty universities representing Europe, USA, Canada and South Korea with a focus on the Ten Principles which have been endorsed by the International Federation on Ageing and the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education.
We are pleased to host our second international conference in Dublin, March 13th/14th next. Our keynotes include Prof. Alexander Kalache (former Director of Ageing and Life Course WHO), Prof. David Sixsmith (Simon Fraser University), Prof Ruth Finkelstein (former Director Age-Friendly NYC) Prof Des O'Neill (Trinity College) , Prof Allison Sekuler (VP Research Baycrest and Canadian Brain Health Institute) and Dr. Aine Ni Leimhe Galway University.
The six key themes of the conference allow broad opportunity to engage and other novel innovative research will also be considered.
Papers are still being accepted under the strands Research & Innovation and Technology & Health.
