EMRAN is a network for those in the East Midlands who have an interest in applied research into ageing and older people. The primary aim of EMRAN is 'to facilitate collaborative applied research into ageing and older people' to support an ageing population across the region. Based within CLAHRC East Midlands, we will involve academics, medical staff, third sector representatives, service commissioners, members of the public and anyone with a mutual interest in influencing research in this area. We will host a series of events each year, providing researchers with an opportunity to showcase their research and explore future collaborations.
