'MAKING LONGER LIVES BETTER'     The TRIL Centre looks at the physical, social and cognitive consequences of ageing and develops technologies to address them.  Our mission is to carry out scientific ageing research that informs person-centred technology development and models of care that promote independent living, by predicting health status and preventing decline in older people.

TRIL is an active collaboration between researchers in academic, clinical and industry settings.  Operating as a virtual centre with researchers based in UCD, TCD and Intel, it tackles the problems associated with demographic ageing.   The centre harnesses multidisciplinary ageing research, clinical expertise and enabling technology development and evaluation to support independent living. 

TRIL has developed a novel bio-psycho-social cohort data-set & technology platforms to support its researchers.  Research and innovation in the TRIL Centre is underpinned by a design-ethnography process that facilitates the development of research prototypes leading to execution of experiments with older people in their own homes.  The goal is to better understand how technology can enable health & social care in the community and home. In this way, TRIL enables translation of hospital and lab based research to the home and community.


The ultimate aim of the range of research and innovation activities carried out in the TRIL Centre is to drive the development of new models of home and community care for older people to enable them to live independently 'in place' for longer with a better quality of life that is associated with lower healthcare costs.
