Reimagine Ageing Showcase

Highlighting ground-breaking interdisciplinary research within ageing across Leeds and beyond.

The cross-faculty Reimagine Ageing Network has been established to draw together colleagues from across the University of Leeds and the wider community to develop novel, imaginative solutions to improve quality of life, functional capacity, and well-being of older people, creating the context for positive change.

The Showcase will be focused on the following themes:

  • Healthy Ageing, Digital and Healthcare Technology: Research that enriches existing and (co)develops new digital and assistive technologies to enable people in later years to grow older in healthier ways.
  • Healthy Ageing, Wellbeing, and Quality of life: Research that aims to understand the ageing process of both body and mind, and/or (co) develop, refine, and implement new ways to support health and wellbeing.
  • Healthy Ageing and Society: Research that aims to understand ageing with respect to socio-economic and cultural contexts to reduce health and social inequalities.

Reimagine Ageing are delighted to confirm Prof Debora Price, University of Manchester, Dr Rowan Bailey, University of Hudderfield and Dr Thomas Jackson, from the University of Birmingham as the keynote speakers of the event. 

As well as the keynote presentations, there will also be invited oral presentations and poster presentations as well as a workshop to discuss the next phase of development for the Reimagine Ageing Network as it celebrates its first year and looks ahead to the future.

Researchers are invited to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentations by Friday 12th July.
