This meeting was chaired by Professor Tom Kirkwood, Director of the Institute for Ageing and Health at the University of Newcastle, who delivered the 2001 Reith Lecture, The end of age. The objective of the meeting was to explore how gaps in current research into mortality, identified in the report Scoping mortality research prepared by Dr Catriona Macdonald under the supervision of the Mortality Development Scoping Project Steering Group, might be identified and filled. The Project Steering Group recognises that collaboration between the actuarial profession and other disciplines will be beneficial in gaining new insights into mortality trends.
