Research Activities

With changes in population demographics resulting in a growing number of care homes, economic, health and ethical considerations demand that attention be directed to effective means of creating an enabling built environment to provide older adults with healthy and socially fulfilling lives.

BESiDE squarely addresses this challenge, applying multidisciplinary approaches across key research activities.

Knowledge Sharing Activities

Our goal is to contribute to the transformation of the network of stakeholders involved in care environments into a virtuous cycle of research and design improvement, in which architects, professional bodies, academics, policy makers, charities, and care home providers are all motivated to pursue improvement in the built environment for older adults.

In order to achieve this impact, BESiDE is involved in key Knowledge Sharing activities.
