Welcome to the Healthy Ageing in Rural Communities (HARC) research network, which is comprised of members of the National University of Ireland Galway, Queens University Belfast, FORUM Letterfrack, the Rural Community Network (RCN) and the Public Health Agency Northern Ireland.
HARC is a cross-border initiative funded by the Centre for Ageing Research and Development in Ireland (CARDI) and seeks to bring together expertise on rurality and ageing from Ireland and Northern Ireland for the purposes of information sharing and the generation of research capacity.
As a part of this process, this web-site has been designed to inform practitioners, policy makers, academics, researchers, and other interested parties of the importance of ageing in rural communities and of the objectives and on-going activities of the HARC research network.
Aim and Objectives
The aim of HARC is to establish an interdisciplinary cross-border research network on healthy ageing in rural communities.
The network will draw on the interdisciplinary expertise of academic and stakeholder groups from both the ageing and rural sectors – thereby including both theoretical and applied perspectives and increasing the capacity for rural ageing research in the fields of ageing and rurality in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
HARC has five fundamental objectives, which are as follows;
1. To share existing knowledge on rural ageing in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
2. To enhance the capacity for research on rural healthy ageing in ageing and rural sectors across the island of Ireland.
3. To identify key research questions on healthy ageing in rural communities in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
4. To develop a coordinated interdisciplinary research programme for healthy ageing in rural communities across the island of Ireland.
5. To act as a dissemination and discussion network for future research in the area of healthy rural ageing
