MUARG runs a programme of seminars and events through the academic year to support ageing research.

Leading academics present their latest research alongside practitioners, looking at key themes in ageing like 'ageing, transport and mobility', 'creating age-friendly cities' and 'ageing and changing health behaviour'.

Seminars are open to all and attract audiences of up to 100 including researchers, care providers, older people, local government, NHS and the private sector.

For outputs from previous events including film footage, meeting reports, slides, and programmes see our events archive.
