NUI Galway Receives Grants for Ageing Research

Sep 2010

NUI Galway has been granted funding by the Centre for Ageing Research and Development in Ireland (CARDI) for two research projects focusing on older people. The Centre recently granted four projects funding amounting to almost €300,000 on a national level, and NUI Galway projects account for half of them. The research is aimed at improving the lives of older people and informing future policy for an ageing population in Ireland.

NUI Galway’s Professor Eamon O’ Shea, from the Irish Centre of Social Gerontology is Principal Investigator on “Social Exclusion and Older People in Diverse Rural Communities”. This project brings together multidisciplinary researchers from NUI Galway and Queen’s University Belfast with community organisations Rural Community Network and FORUM Letterfrack. The group will examine social exclusion among older people living in diverse rural areas and investigate ways to prevent social exclusion.
