Encouraging high quality research

The BGS has, as one of its primary goals, the promotion of high quality research into the health and wellbeing of older people. To this end, it holds two international and interdisciplinary three-day conferences each year, along with smaller special interest events such as falls and postural health; continence; community geriatrics and more.

For the latest offer of research funding, see the March 2017 issue of Research Development MH&LS Funding Opportunities (pdf)
