CARDI Grant Programmes promote research partnerships that look at issues affecting older people in new ways.

We encourage ground-breaking studies from across the island of Ireland that bring together different disciplines to help improve the lives of our older people.

We have awarded funding to 32 research projects to date through our grants programme. These projects cover a wide spectrum of research, reflecting the huge range of issues relevant to the ageing research agenda.
