法律 & General partners with Edinburgh University to launch £20M research centre

Increasing life expectancy is to be celebrated, but it poses major challenges for individuals, families and the public and private sectors. Legal & General’s partnership with the University of Edinburgh aims to address these growing societal issues. 法律 & General announces its long term partnership with the 爱丁堡大学 to establish the Advanced Care Research Centre (“ACRC”), the first of its kind in the UK. ACRC will offer a seven-year multi-disciplinary research programme designed to improve understanding of care in later life and to revolutionise how it is delivered.

ACRC’s vision is that its research can enable data-driven, personalised and affordable care that delivers independence, dignity and a high quality of life for people living in their own homes or in supported care environments. The 爱丁堡大学’s grant-funded, academic-led ACRC programme will operate in the public interest, forming a major new strand in 法律 & General’s drive towards Inclusive Capitalism.

The ACRC will work in partnership with other top tier universities to engage multiple public and private stakeholders, as well as individuals in later life, their families and communities. The ACRC will also include an Academy that will develop a new generation of enterprise-oriented leaders in later life care through a rigorous programme of cross-disciplinary research-based training. The partnership with 法律 & General marks the University’s largest industry investment, as part of the £661m Data-Driven Innovation initiative within the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal.

ACRC will deliver a programme of seven thematic activities that combine research across multiple disciplines including: medicine and other care professions, life sciences, engineering, informatics, data and social sciences. This new research centre, which will receive £20m funding from 法律 & General, will put the 爱丁堡大学 and its partners at the forefront of research, development and collaboration to improve the academic understanding of later life.  All research findings made during this partnership will be publicly available. 

As the UK’s largest pension fund investor with £1.2 trillion of assets under management, and a leading provider of longevity risk solutions and retirement products to millions of customers, Legal & General has deep insight into ageing populations. Changing demographics around ageing will have a crucial impact on 法律 & General’s customers, making this one of the company’s long-term strategic growth drivers.

Legal & General works closely alongside and in support of UK academics, including through the Longevity Science Panel. In the last two years alone, it has formed the UK’s largest science and technology property partnership, Bruntwood SciTech, and announced a £4bn partnership with Oxford University to develop science and innovation districts within the region, together with homes for staff and students. 法律 & General’s long term partnership with Newcastle Council and Newcastle University continues to deliver at pace. Its Newcastle Helix scheme, which houses the UK’s National Centre for Ageing, brings together innovators in improving quality of life as people age, alongside a major new hub for scientific research and technology.

建立ACRC将彻底改变英国的承诺,认识和解决人口变化巨大的问题 - 社会和经济有了显著影响全球挑战的一部分。爱丁堡的学术主导,数据为基础和跨学科的方法将提供重要的积极变化老化和关怀,我们发现这是一个引人注目的和实际的愿景。这种伙伴关系,我们正在打造与一流机构向上和向下的国家,从牛津大学和纽卡斯尔大学,到巴斯大学,伦敦大学学院,现在爱丁堡将有助于在科学,技术交付转移表盘和老护理为未来许多几代吃。
