Working Together on Ageing
Industry and Research Forum
WSU Bankstown, Friday 22nd July
In 2015, a cross-disciplinary
group of university researchers with a focus on ageing formed the WSU Ageing Consortium.
In April 2016 The MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development held a
forum for researchers working at WSU to share knowledge and outcomes, promote
the ageing research area, facilitate cross faculty collaboration, and connect
with community representatives from the aged care sector.
The aim of the forum
"Working Together on Ageing" workshop is a logical next step for WSU
researchers to engage more fully with external industry partners in order to
discover mutual research, translation and project development ideas.
Participants & presentation format:
format will be a series of 10-15 minute presentations from select aged care industry
organisation representatives and academics finishing up with a round table
discussion to discuss common themes and next steps. This will be a full day
event with morning tea and lunch provided. Please advise of any dietary
requirements on registration.
Time & Place:
The meeting will
be held on Friday 22nd July from 10 am to 4.30 pm on WSU's Bankstown Campus, room
