The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) is seeking to commission an evaluation of the New Dynamic of Ageing (NDA) Programme, to build on and complement earlier evaluation activities. The NDA Programme was a ten-year £20 million multidisciplinary research initiative with the ultimate aim of improving quality of life of older people. It was a unique collaboration between five UK Research Councils: the ESRC, the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, the Medical Research Council and the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The main users of this evaluation will be ESRC and the other funders as listed above. The intention is to publish the executive summary of the final report. The funders will appoint an independent team of evaluators to conduct this evaluation between February and October 2016. The final report produced by the evaluators will be considered by the funders, with any necessary final amendments to be completed by the evaluators by end of November 2016.
Deadline for proposals: 15 February
