About

‘Healthy Living’ is an interdisciplinary topic allowing diverse and complementary research specialism’s to contribute to solving one of the most important questions currently facing us. 

One of the key global challenges at the moment is how to improve human health and wellbeing.  It is predicted that by 2020 approximately 1 in 5 of the European population will be aged 65 years or over and that by 2050 this could rise to 2 in 5.  Other Westernized countries throughout the world are also following a similar trend.  This increase in life expectancy has not been accompanied by an increase in healthy life expectancy; thus, the ageing population is a major health and economic issue, providing a considerable impetus to understand and improve the health of humankind.  Some of the approaches to increasing our knowledge and understanding of these issues, and how to combat them include focusing on stress, exercise, nutrition, and sleep, as key health-related behavioural variables.  Developing these areas of research and finding novel solutions to this global challenge is likely to take a multidisciplinary approach.

 A major objective of universities across the U21 network is to ensure that researchers appreciate the value of belonging to rich intellectual communities in which a multiplicity of research is being carried out.  At this U21 ECR workshop, you will meet global peers for networking and research communication, while gaining valuable skills and training in critical aspects of research career development, such as media and communication skills, journal editing, licensing and spin-offs, grant writing, and career progression.  Training will be conducted by academics and/or industry professionals with experience in these skills and research career development training.
