Announcement of Accepted Abstracts
The aim of the ERA pre-BSG annual conference event is to provide the space and opportunity for emerging researchers in ageing to experience meaningful participation and active engagement with their peers. The ERA event is your chance to talk with, and listen to your peers, to share ideas and issues, to practise presenting your research and it is an opportunity for reflection, all within a safe, supportive environment.
There are several good reasons to engage and connect with your peers:
- We share an interest/passion in ageing
- We are students or early career gerontologist
- We are tomorrow leaders in gerontology
Opportunities for professional development at this event include: networking, a masterclass and workshop, presentation of your research and a lunch with the leaders. See the programme of events for more information.
