Context

Faced with rapid technological change, and rapidly evolving behavior in patients in relation to their health, the Centre of Excellence on Longevity has brought together Quebec’s centres of excellence and research centres in the field of aging in a single campus. This coordination of the operational activities of managers and clinicians in the healthcare network rounds out the activities of the Quebec Network for Research on Aging (RQRV). Indeed, the Quebec Longevity Campus aims to anticipate innovation, support ongoing research projects and enable the emergence of new, joint research projects. Regular meetings will make it possible to share information with an approach that favors collaborative working and knowledge brokering in Quebec.

 

Objectives

> To bring together the leadership teams of each research centre and centre of excellence in Quebec and the RQRV to facilitate relationship building among each organization.

> To act as a discussion forum for experts in longevity, decision-makers, and stakeholders in healthcare policy, social services, and citizens, to share and convey knowledge derived from discussion fora.

> To support the QNRA in promoting research in Quebec on aging, in Canada and globally.
