Sparc / KT-EQUAL consortium of UK researchers extending quality of life for older and disabled people - upcoming events

Dear colleague,

We hope you are well.

KT-EQUAL has been working hard to launch some exciting developments and workshops more of which you can read about below.

Our new blog

This week we launched our new KT-EQUAL blog. We'll be updating it regularly with articles and resources about ageing research, knowledge transfer, photos, news and views -- in fact, anything that catches our eye. To get the ball rolling, we've launched with a series of articles on using social networking in ageing research, written by our Senior Media Fellow Professor Trevor Cox.

The new blog has a full commenting facility, so we'd love to hear what you think about our posts, or your suggestions for topics we can cover in the future. You can also subscribe to the blog using your favourite RSS reader or just check back to our homepage regularly (http://www.equal.ac.uk) for the latest updates.
