The aim of the meeting was to provide an open forum where anyone could voice their ideas about research needs.

Ageing Well Management Directorate member Associate Professor Debra Waters and researcher Fiona Doolan-Noble led the meeting.

The Dunedin meeting attracted a range of stakeholders including  academics, care-givers, city council members and older members of the community.

Contributions from this event will help form the developing research programme of both the Ageing Well National Science Challenge and the Collaboration of Ageing Research.
