Co-production of ageing research does not solely relate to engaging with older people as co-researchers. Transdisciplinary co-production can be used to co-produce knowledge through the combination of perspectives from a variety of stakeholders, including policy-makers, community members, and academics. By identifying and bringing together a range of stakeholders in any given research project, co-production methods can be utilised to better understand the changing needs of age-friendly cities.
This seminar will discuss why co-production is important to ageing research, what we currently know about using transdisciplinary co-production and what evidence gaps still remain.
