CARDI 2007-2015: An Overview

23rd September 2015,

Since its establishment in 2007, the Centre for Ageing Research and Development in Ireland (CARDI) has been committed to building a strong and lasting community of researchers in ageing in Ireland, North and South.

This report provides a flavour of the work that has been undertaken since CARDI’s establishment. It has been an exciting journey watching our thoughts move into action. We are delighted that ageing research in Ireland, North and South, is flourishing and the spirit of co-operation across the island of Ireland is now stronger than ever before.

CARDI Focus on... the health of older women in employment

17th August 2015, CARDI

The age of qualification for state pensions is increasing in both the Republic of Ireland (ROI) and Northern Ireland (NI). The aim of the policy change is to create a sustainable state pension system given the rise in life expectancy.  However, it is important that policymakers fully understand and take account of the health impact of introducing longer working lives especially for those in caring roles.
