NIHR ARCs National Priority Area in Healthy Ageing Dementia and Frailty Programme Launch - October 1, 2021
When: Friday, 1 October 2021 13:00 – 14:00 BST
Celebrate the NIHR ARCs National Priority Area in Healthy Ageing, Dementia and Frailty Programme Launch, showcasing 3 new projects with collaborations across 9 different ARC regions. We will have expert speakers and presentations from projects leads, plus a live Q&A to find out more about the studies, their national impact on healthcare and how you can get involved.
The research programme is focused on the health challenges facing our growing older population. It is led by a consortium of Applied Research Collaborations (ARCs), the host NIHR ARC Wessex with NIHR ARC Greater Manchester, NIHR ARC Yorkshire & Humber and NIHR ARC South West Peninsula.
This consortium of ARCs will work across the NIHR ARC network in England as part of the NIHR National Priority Area research programme. The work is funded by an award of £1.8 million until September 2023.
