Type of institution
The National Seniors Productive Ageing Centre (NSPAC) was established by National Seniors Australia (NSA) to advance knowledge and understanding into all aspects of productive ageing to improve the quality of life of people aged 50 and over. We play a pivotal role in bridging the gap between traditional academic researchers in ageing, the community and decision-makers. With access to over a quarter of a million members, National Seniors is uniquely placed to facilitate research into productive ageing and disseminate findings to the broader community. Based in Melbourne, NSPAC is co-funded by NSA and the Department of Health and Ageing.
Our broad research purpose is to “emphasise the positives of ageing and an ageing society, as well as flag the challenges”.
Main research areas
The funding agreement with Department of Health and Ageing requires that the PAC Research and Education program is based upon:
1. Lifestyle issues for seniors;
2. Productive ageing through people maintaining their independence;
3. Productive ageing through paid and volunteer work;
4. Productive ageing through education and learning;
5. Preventative health and productive ageing; and
6. Productive ageing and technology
The broader context within which this research is framed is to “emphasise the positives of ageing and an ageing society, as well as flag the challenges”.
