Phillips J (2021) Future directions for research in healthy ageing. In: Ageing Past, Present and Future: Innovation and Change. British Society of Gerontology 50th Annual Conference, Virtual, 07.07.2021-09.07.2021. Hampshire: British Society of Gerontology, p. 85.

The final paper in the Healthy Ageing Challenge symposium will bring together the themes of the 4 papers and provide a brief overview of the landscape of ageing research including various programmes of research funded through ESRC/UKRI since 1980 and the future direction of travel drawing on the UK R&D Roadmap, with its emphasis on place and innovation. The paper will discuss wider developments in the arena of Healthy Ageing (for example, APPG for Longevity & Business For Health; R&D Roadmap and the ‘Build Back Better - Plan for Growth’) that will potentially shape future research and programmes of work.
