  • Chris Phillipson, as well as giving a keynote presentation at the 24th Superannuation Colloquium, will co-host a symposium on Critical Perspectives on Age-Friendly Communities at the IFA 2016 Global conference with CI Kendig and visit the CEPAR ANU node.
  • Merril Silverstein will visit the CEPAR ANU researchers at CRAHW to work on a project focused on intergenerational relations as well as a new ARC Discovery Project on Ageing in China and Australia.
  • Olivia S. Mitchell will be here in July to deliver a keynote at the Superannuation Colloquium.
CEPAR researchers have delivered presentations and attended events locally and internationally. Here is a small selection:
