This dynamic partnership is already reaping rich rewards for researchers from Sheffield and Taiwan as we seek to understand more about the cultural issues that relate to design and ageing.

An award from the British Council has provided the team with the opportunity to build on the work previously undertaken by Professor Paul Chamberlain Chamberlain as part of ‘Living Rooms’ research programme funded by SPARC which sought to increase our design understanding of ageing and how the design of the home can support independence and wellbeing in later life.

The funding will enable mobility between the countries for Professor Chamberlain, Professor Gail Mountain and Dr Kevin Tsang from the design centre at Chang Gung University together with their research teams.
