This chapter outlines the objectives and contents of the New Dynamics of Ageing (NDA) Research Programme. It discusses significant changes taking place in the field of gerontological science. It also claims that the Programme was both a reflection of the shifting scientific context as well as a source of further stimulation to the changes already under way. The Programme was funded by five UK Research Councils covering the arts and humanities, biological sciences, engineering, social sciences, and medical research. It brought together researchers from every major discipline with an interest in ageing. The key elements of this emergent new science of ageing are multi-disciplinarity, user engagement, and knowledge exchange.

Keywords:   NDA, UK Research Councils, medical research, gerentological science
