TILDA presents to European Union Parliament
TILDA representatives were invited by Emer Costello MEP to present the study and its findings to the EU Parliament on 2nd October 2013. The seminar, entitled “Living happier and healthier in the age of longevity: how longitudinal studies on ageing inform policy for Healthy Life Years. Insights from TILDA”, focussed on how TILDA is characterising the older citizen and exploring the ageing process and the determinants of successful ageing in order to plan appropriate health, social and economic policies. Such policies are essential for development of an environment for ageing well.
TILDA’s founder and Principal Investigator, Professor Rose Anne Kenny presented the seminar with Trinity collaborators Professors Ian Robertson, Fiona Newell, Richard Reilly, Charles Normand and Alan Barrett and AbbVie General Manager Mr Ryan Quigley.
