Résumé :

Ce document fait suite à un atelier qui a eu lieu en mai sur le thème de la recherche sur le vieillissement. Des experts internationaux provenant de différentes disciplines s'étaient rassemblés pour partager des perspectives et évaluer la recherche sur le vieillissement au Royaume-Uni. Les travaux ont abouti à une liste de 10 commandements et à un plan d'action pour le développement de la recherche sur le vieillissement au Royaume-Uni.

Abstract
Increases in longevity resulting from improvements in health care and living conditions together with a decrease in fertility rates have contributed to a shift towards an aged population profile. For the first time the UK has more people over age 60 than below 16 years of age. The increase in longevity has not been accompanied by an increase in disease-free life expectancy and research into ageing is required to improve the health and quality of life of older people. However, as the House of Lords reported, ageing research in the UK is not adequately structured and a clear vision and plan are urgently required. Hence, with the aim of setting a common vision for action in ageing research in the UK, a 'Spark Workshop' was organised. International experts from different disciplines related to ageing research gathered to share their perspectives and to evaluate the present status of ageing research in the UK. A detailed assessment of potential improvements was conducted and the prospective secondary gains were considered, which were subsequently distilled into a list of 'ten commandments'. We believe that these commandments, if followed, will help to bring about the necessary implementation of an action plan for ageing research in the UK, commensurate with the scale of the challenge, which is to transform the manifold opportunities of increased longevity into actual delivery of a society living not only for longer, but also healthier, wealthier and happier.
