Addressing the Ageing Challenge: From Newcastle. For the World

Join us for the 2019 Newcastle University celebratory event - Addressing the Ageing Challenge: From Newcastle. For the World

Date/Time: 27 November 2019, 13:30-18:00

Venue: Theatre Space, The Catalyst, Newcastle Helix

Newcastle University believes it has never been more important to be a globally-inclusive institution and that we should use our international presence to tackle the ‘grand challenges’ that affect society locally, nationally and globally.

Ageing and Health has long been recognised as one of Newcastle's main areas of multi-disciplinary strength, resulting in the formation of the Institute for Ageing in 2014 to integrate all of Newcastle University’s research on ageing into one powerful centre for research into living better for longer.

Join us as we celebrate the work of the Institute for Ageing with an event titled - Addressing the Ageing Challenge: From Newcastle. For the World.
