Oxford Institute of Population Ageing: Partnerships and Research Programmes in Mexico
26 March 2015
The International Strategy Office at Oxford University has released a publication on long-standing Mexico-Oxford partnerships, featuring the Latin American Network on Ageing, directed by George Leeson.
The LARNA network now comprises more than 70 distinguished academics in the field of ageing from 10 countries across Latin America working together and with fellow academics from the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing. Network activities have received funding on several occasions from the British Academy, most recently an International Partnership and Mobility Scheme Award in collaboration with the Department of Governance and Development at the University of Guanajuato-Leon, Mexico. Annual Network conferences have been held in the region since 2010 and the network’s first training and capacity building workshop is to be held at the University of Guanajuato-Leon in March 2015.
