The Nordic Centre one-day hybrid research meeting
Aged care in context and across discipline
8.15-17.00 (CET), 17 April 2023
University of Gothenburg, Sweden & zoom

In both Nordic and Chinese contexts, aged care is to be in urgent need of action and encounters a lot of challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic has further accelerated the language of challenges. As such, University of Gothenburg in Sweden will organize one-day hybrid research meeting on aged care under the co-operation with University of Oslo in Norway and Fudan University in Shanghai as well as Pinetree Care Group in Beijing. Our one-day hybrid research meeting on aged care in context and across discipline invites researchers working in Nordic and Chinese member universities from across disciplines including medicine, economics, sociology, public health, psychiatry, social work, organization and management etc. that explore aged care in context, among others, mental health care, dementia care, home care, institutional care at regional, community, national, and international level. Our research meeting seeks to transcend physical boundaries by building and offering a hybrid conference model to boost simultaneous communications for on-site participants from Nordic member universities and on-line participants abroad from Chinese universities and other interested audiences, whereby all delegates are afforded equal participatory and experiential spaces within our hybrid meeting.
