ILC-UK is the leading think tank impacting policy on longevity, ageing and population change. We are
independent and non-partisan. We develop ideas, undertake research and create a forum for
debate. Our remit is broad, and includes the following issues:

  • Health, including dementia
  • Social care
  • Housing and communities, including transport and local area planning
  • Pensions and financial planning
  • Age discrimination and equality
  • Intergenerational issues
  • Technology, including digital exclusion and assistive technologies

For examples of other areas we are working on, please see our publications page:

We hope researchers who are interested in understanding and working together on the research and policy implications of ageing will join the panel. We would be able to offer researchers a unique opportunity to work collaboratively on areas of mutual interest through joint proposals, research and policy projects and joint dissemination activities for example co-authoring articles. This opportunity is of added value as it allows emerging researchers to demonstrate that their ideas and knowledge has impact beyond academia into the policy-making environment.

The panel will meet formally three times a year and we will also hold a number of informal networking events. Members of the panel will be expected to play an active role in supporting the work of the ILC-UK and offer advice and active support to our research and policy work.

To express an interest in becoming a member of the panel please send a CV and a brief email summarising your research expertise and interest to:, by Friday 31st May.
