Local Networks: International Intergenerational Research Network
Our aim is to connect practitioners, policy makers, academics and researchers who are actively or interested in investigating the impact of intergenerational work/relationships on both younger and older aged participants to come together to discuss and explore the following:
- An overview of research studies conducted to date- and the strengths and weaknesses of this work (identifying gaps in the knowledge produced to date).
- Where demand for new research is coming from – the public sector and policy makers, consumers, practitioners, investors? Are there specific fields within intergenerational research that should be prioritised?
- Potential for research project development at multiple sites across the UK and collaboration further afield.
- Discussion of methodologies and potential project ideas – is there an appetite to attempt to run a multi-site intergenerational impact assessment project? If so, what might that look like?
