Centre for Ageing Research and Development in Ireland (CARDI)
CARDI has been established to encourage collaboration among age researchers, disseminate research information relevant to an ageing population and older people and advance the ageing research agenda in Ireland (North and South). It is funded by Atlantic Philanthropies augmented by grants from the Research and Development Office for Health and Social Care, Northern Ireland and the Department of Health & Children in Dublin and is hosted by the Institute of Public Health in Ireland.
We recognise that there is a wide range of research being undertaken in Ireland on ageing and older people, however there is no central depositary where people can access this information. In addition, a large amount of research is being undertaken which may be relevant to ageing and older people but is not necessarily labelled as such.
The first stage of our work is the creation of an Ireland-wide directory of researchers, research interests and research projects relevant to ageing and older people.
You can download a short form by clicking here, which I would be grateful if you could take a few minutes to complete, or, if more appropriate, pass to another colleague. You can also return the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The information collated is intended to provide a useful reference point and has the potential to help facilitate links between researchers and sectors. It will also capture the scope of ageing research activities happening, specifically in Ireland (North and South) within Government, Non Government Organisations and academia, as well as collaboration with national and international colleagues.
This information will be made available on line and will provide a useful way of finding out about the work of other researchers, research organisations/centres and new and emerging research fields relevant to ageing and older people. Please complete those sections you deem appropriate to share via the CARDI website.
If you require any clarification, need further information or would like to find out more about CARDI, please email: email@example.com or telephone - 0044 (0) 28 90 690066.
Thank you for your time and support in this matter.
