Program Description

β€œI asked each of them to prepare an impact statement, so that right from the beginning of their work they were thinking about 'when I finish this and publish the results, what is going to be the impact on...could be policy, could be practice, it could be the development of new products.”

β€œAt the end of it, it has to have an impact on society that will lead to an improvement in the experience of the ageing process. If we can genuinely transform the way that society views the ageing process and the way that society thinks about older people, then that will be the most rewarding thing that I could think of.”
