The AAG Research Trust is the research grant arm of AAG. Between us, we have over 60 years' experience in connecting research, policy and practice. While AAG serves as its corporate trustee, the Research Trust is a wholly independent charitable organisation that relies entirely on individual and organisational gifts to fund innovative research that aims to improve and optimise the lived experience of ageing.
All current funding programs have been made possible by generous bequests and donations, and through strategic partnerships with organisations such as Dementia Australia Research Foundation.
We are uniquely placed within Australia's peak national body for researchers and professionals working across the multidisciplinary fields of ageing. This position allows us to enable high-impact, translatable research that often falls outside the criteria of other large government funding platforms.
By managing targeted research funding for work related to the social, psychological, legal, health and economic needs of ageing and older age, we promote AAG's fundamental commitment to improving the experience of ageing by connecting research, policy and practice.
