Professor Michael Murray and Professor Clare Holdsworth have been invited by the European Commission to join its European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing.

Professor Murray will represent the wealth of expertise developed at Keele in promoting age friendly communities through the arts, in the Action Group on Age Friendly Buildings, Cities and Environments. Professor Murray was recently appointed lead of the University's research theme on ageing.

In the Action Group on Frailty and Functional Decline, Professor Holdsworth will provide new insight from her ESRC-funded research into alcohol consumption, life course transitions and health in later life in later life.

This European Partnership is a major, strategic forum for responding to the common issues of our ageing society. The Professors will travel to Brussels in May and July for the first Action Group meetings.
