Annual Workshop on Population Ageing and the Chinese Economy
The second Annual Workshop on Population Ageing and the Chinese Economy, hosted jointly by the APRU Population Ageing Research Hub and the Australian-China Population Ageing Research Hub (both located in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research (CEPAR) at the University of New South Wales), took place on the 21st and 22nd of July 2016 on UNSW campus in Sydney. The workshop attracted 38 participants who came together for an exciting two-day program.
The first day of the workshop featured five presentations from renowned international experts and a lively roundtable discussion. The second day was reserved for presentations from nine PhD students or early career researchers from APRU universities in Australia and Asia, who presented their innovative projects and received feedback from the senior experts and other workshop participants in a collegial and constructive atmosphere. Generously-timed coffee and lunch breaks and a free workshop dinner on the evening of the first workshop day gave all participants ample opportunities to network and connect.
