Postgraduate Study Day in Ageing Research - PROGRAMME
Friday, 15th April 2016
The Education Centre, Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services, Dublin
'The IGS Postgraduate study day provided a valuable opportunity to present, and to gain feedback, on my early stage research to an audience of my peers. The keynote speakers provided insight and pertinent advice on the successful completion of a Ph.D. Coming together at the Study Day as an academic community, to network and to listen to other student’s research pursuits, from a diverse range of disciplines, proved an interesting, worthwhile and enjoyable experience.'
Catherine Elliott O'Dare, PhD Candidate, School of Social Work and Social Policy, Trinity College Dublin 2
Thanks to everyone involved in the 2016 IGS Postgrad Study Day for a brilliant and inspiring event. There was a range of stimulating multidisciplinary topics that benefitted me in learning more about older adults and in developing my research further. The venue and event was excellently organised with a warm welcome provided to all those in attendance. I would have no hesitation in recommending this Study Day to peers, colleagues and those interested in this exciting field of research. Congratulations once again and I wish you continued success.
