Our exhibition was then finally officially opened by Prof. Richard Greene, the Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange at Manchester Metropolitan University- declaring the exhibition ready to travel round research conferences all summer!

The exhibition was then also officially opened by Prof. Tom Jefferies, Head of MSA - who described his involvement with PHASE and the role it serves in the school to bring different topics of research together for the social good

We had a short presentation to open the exhibition by Stefan White, describing the aims of PHASE in MSA and the numerous events our exhibition will go to throughout the summer.

As part of our exhibition, and the community engagement event on Monday, we've had a team making a film of the key points of our research. Here they are hard at work yesterday!

Now we're having a question time- what do the policy makers think of our academic ideas, and what do the academics have to ask the policy makers? We've had questions covering care homes, developers, the multi-generational household, cultural change, dementia friendly housing and quality of architecture in different parts of the country. Now to the undergraduate students, what questions do they have?
Posted 25 Apr 2018 15:56
We've heard lots of short presentations from our collaborators on their really interesting and insightful research and why they are interested in housing for older people. There's a consensus that housing for older people hasn't been given enough thought, and it's good to hear that other Universities have been researching this in collaboration with architectural practices.

The first of our three big events during this week has kicked off!
We're hosting an academic round table, discussing with 13 academics and policy makers in Greater Manchester the work we've been doing on housing for older people, and their experience of the dynamic between researchers and policy makers...

Posted 23 Apr 2018 10:49
The community engagement group have started the day by continuing with their board game -good progress!
Posted 20 Apr 2018 12:08
The team has been split into two - the first group are concentrating on designing a community engagement event, including games, workshops and questionnaires to find out what older people want from housing in Greater Manchester.
This will be a key event in our events week!
