The PhD Forum

Aimed at embedding the participation of early career investigators in the ROSEnet action, the PhD Forum provides a supportive network for 10 PhD students working on topics related to old-age social exclusion. The Forum will serve as a collegial space for methodological discussion, the presentation of preliminary findings, and conceptual debate. Forum participants can actively draw on expertise from across the Action for guidance, support and informal mentorship.

Older Adult Reference Group

The Older Adult Reference Group has been established as a means of including the voices and perspectives of older people within the ROSEnet Action. Embedding ‘on-the-ground’ experiences of older adult advocates, and the organisations that they represent, will help ensure the Action’s approach, activities and outcomes are relevant and impactful. The Group also provides the opportunities for individuals to participate in the Action’s activities and events, as members of the Action, and provides a space for individuals with shared interests to discuss and debate topics related to old-age social exclusion.
