Stockholm City Conference Centre, Sweden
Organised in partnership withThe Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research (FAS)
The third ERA-AGE Forum meeting brought together the ERA-AGE partners, associate members and other European ageing research funders and policy makers from 24 European countries with the aim of developing collaboration.
The meeting focused on dissemination of good practices on ageing research databases and funding research institutes on ageing. Building upon recommendations that emerged from two previous European Forum meetings, the meeting aimed to further develop these recommendations into strategies for collaboration.
The short welcome by a representative from the Swedish Ministry of Health and Social Affairs was followed by presentations on national interdisciplinary research institutes on ageing and ageing research databases. Subsequent working group discussions focused on developing collaboration. The recommendations of working groups were presented in the closing plenary.
The meeting was important because the outcomes of the workshops will contribute to the development of European collaboration and to the proposals for joint funding initiatives.
