As the SIA programme is finishing relatively soon, we are happy to inform you that a 3- year network grant on Social Inequalities in Ageing has been awarded from the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare (Forte). “The new network support enables an important continuation of the capacity building in social ageing research that we have implemented within the SIA programme”, says PI Johan Fritzell. Like the SIA programme, several leading Nordic ageing researchers and their junior colleagues are part of the new network. In addition, the network will organize yearly workshops for Nordic junior researchers and aims further to foster research collaborations across the Nordic countries.
