Achieving impact in age-related research
Professor James Goodwin, Head of Research at Age UK, will be giving a guest lecture at Leeds on 28 March on 'Achieving impact in age-related research'.
Professor Goodwin will disclose the latest evidence on the factors which are known to influence knowledge transfer and which have been used in the production of the new World Health Organisation knowledge transfer model for ageing and health - a 'global first'. He will show how this model can be applied to meet the needs of an ageing population in the UK and what practical considerations should be used by researchers in identifying, achieving and demonstrating research impact.
The lecture will take place:
On: Wednesday 28 March 2012
At: 12 noon
In: Lecture Theatre A, Mechanical Engineering
