Research

The Australian Institute for Population Ageing Research (AIPAR) will deliver a highly innovative and creative research program through three mechanisms:
  1. Cross-disciplinary research programs will deliver broad-based and robust outcomes for the end-user
  2. By offering research training to PhD students and postdoctoral fellows it will create a new generation of researchers with an enriched appreciation of disciplinary contributions
  3. The management committee will pursue their own ageing research programs to provide a continuing rich source of complementary research

At the heart of the research will be the development and design of innovative theory, methodology, and statistical analysis to generate the best possible outcomes.
