Intergenerational Family Resource Allocation Meeting Summary

Thursday, March 10, 2005


The NIA and NICHD sponsored a meeting to bring together grantees of the Intergenerational Family Resource Allocation RFA to present projects, discuss methodological and data collection issues, and create an interdisciplinary network of researchers doing work on intergenerational resource allocation. Other goals were to bring together researchers doing work related to children with those doing work in the aging field; to familiarize economists with relevant work in child development and aging; and to ensure that the two major funding agencies in intergenerational resource allocation were "on the same page" in terms of topics of interest.
