A €463,000 grant has been given to researchers at a university in Chelmsford looking into healthy ageing.

The team from Anglia Ruskin’s Lord Ashcroft International Business School has been given the money, which is about £381,500, to lead the Biz4Age project over the next 18 months.

Researchers will be looking into the importance of good healthcare for older people and how this affects the economy around Europe.
