The Australia-China Population Ageing Hub, in collaboration with the APRU Population Ageing Research Hub, will host its annual workshop in July at UNSW Sydney.

The second day will focus on the research of young scholars working on this topic.
When: 11-12 July 2017
Where: UNSW Business School, Kensington Campus UNSW Sydney
