External Events

The following are links to external workshops, conferences, and funding opportunities and events that may be of interest to researchers focused on aging:

The Network on Life Course Health Dynamics and Disparities in 21st Century America (NLCHDD), funded by the National Institute on Aging, invites interested researchers to submit pilot proposals that have the potential to better understand how health and mortality outcomes across the adult life course are shaped by US state contexts. Investigators may request total (direct + indirect) costs in the range of $10,000-$20,000 for pilot projects, with a limit of 8% on indirect costs (IDC). Funds can be used for research assistance, salaries, travel, data acquisition, etc. Principal Investigators must hold a PhD. The NLCHDD expects to make 3-4 awards. Proposals are due January 10, 2020.

NIA funding opportunity: Innovations to Foster Healthy Longevity in Low-Income Settings. The National Institute on Aging has issued a Request For Applications looking for innovations for healthy longevity, with a focus on low- and middle-income countries or low-income settings in high-income countries. This request is in parallel with the U.S. National Academy of Medicine’s Healthy Longevity Global Grand Challenge,  a worldwide movement to improve physical, mental, and social well-being for people as they age.  Due date for applications is February 3, 2020.

Population Association of America’s Annual Meeting, April 22-25, 2020: The PAA’s annual meeting is a premier conference of demographers and social and health scientists from the United States and abroad. Here senior, mid- and early-career demographers are afforded the opportunity to present their research in oral and poster sessions, hear of others’ findings, and network with their peers. Since PAA’s first conference in 1930, much important research has been presented on topics ranging from migration to sexual reproductive health to race and gender issues

RAND is now accepting applications for the 2020 RAND Summer Institute (RSI) on the Demography, Economics, Psychology, and Epidemiology of Aging. RSI addresses critical issues facing our aging population, and offers attendees the opportunity to connect with expert researchers in a variety of disciplines to discuss the interrelationship of health, economic, status, and public policy in the aging field. The 2020 conference will be held July 8–9 at the RAND Corporation headquarters campus in Santa Monica, California. The conference aims to serve as a vehicle to provide additional training to researchers new to the field of aging.
