Worldwide Universities Network Annual meeting, 21-23 May, Perth, Australia
In May 2018, Professor Sue Yeandle participated in the annual Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) meeting in Perth Australia on behalf of the University of Sheffield, along with other University colleagues. Sue gave a presentation, ‘Eldercare and ageing well: transnational dimensions of the Sustainable Care: connecting people and systems programme’, at the request of the conference organisers, in the session on ‘Promoting Adaptability across the Life course’ convened by WUN colleagues at the University of Southampton.
The international network of the current Sustainable Care programme (which is resourced in 2017-21 mainly by a UK ESRC Large Grant and by participating universities’ contributions), was supported in 2016, during its development phase, by a WUN Research Development Fund (RDF) award. Following the conference, Sue also attended a meeting with WUN Coordinators from around the world, held at the University of Sydney, to discuss the role of RDF funding in supporting major research grant proposals.
