Following our in-depth inquiry on the future of ageing, we have deveoped an ethical framework to help guide the actions of everyone involved in conducting research relating to ageing.
This report sets out an ethical framework and recommendations for research and innovation related to ageing.
We commissioned a deliberative public dialogue as part of our current in-depth inquiry on ageing, to help us to ensure that we are advocating policy changes that are ethical, rational, informed and inclusive of public views and values.
Thinks Insight & Strategy (previously known as BritainThinks), an insight and strategy consultancy, ran this dialogue for us in the summer of 2022. The dialogue involved 24 members of the public and explored people’s views on our draft recommendations and provisional findings on key issues addressed by our in-depth inquiry.
The public dialogue followed a number of smaller engagement workshops that we designed and ran across the country, speaking to a variety of people about how science and technology might support them as they grow older.
