This article was originally published in Clinica
The Irish health ministry has inaugurated a cross-border centre for research into ageing. The main aims of the not-for-profit CARDI (Centre for Ageing Research in Ireland), according to its 2008-11 strategic plan, include: "identifying and establishing research priorities for policy and practice" in Ireland (South and North); stimulating this activity, such as by promoting greater collaboration and co-operation; and informing age-related care policy. CARDI's work, which will be hosted by Ireland's Institute of Public Health, is said to be modelled on Canadian and Australian initiatives in this area.
