UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is the headline sponsor at the Global Ageing Conference, taking place in Glasgow in September, and organised by the National Care Forum (NCF) together with Scottish Care and the Global Ageing Network.
UKRI’s presence at the Global Ageing Conference will be led by UKRI’s Healthy Ageing
Challenge, which is delivered by Innovate UK, the UK’s national innovation agency, and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
Cynthia Bullock, Deputy Challenge Director from UKRI said:
As well as talking about research and innovation from across the UK, George MacGinnis,
Director of the UKRI’s Healthy Ageing Challenge, will also take part in panel sessions
discussing the case for reform and will join other representatives taking to the stage to
address delegates during the course of the two-day conference.
UKRI’s presence at the event couldn’t be timelier for Katie Smith Sloan, Executive Director
of Global Ageing Network and CEO of LeadingAge who explained:
