The National Symposium on Ageing Research: Building evidence, Policy and Practice was held at the Australian National University from the 23 to 25 September 2003. The two-and-a-half day program featured an exceptional list of internationally and nationally recognised researchers, leading policy makers, and influential industry and community representatives.

The Symposium is an outcome of the Building Ageing Research Capacity (BARC) Project. The BARC project is a collaborative venture between the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare and the Office for an Ageing Australia, Department of Health and Ageing.

Commenced in mid-2002, the BARC project is aimed at developing and encouraging maximum collaboration and coordination between Australian researchers and policy makers on ageing issues. Better collaboration and coordination are seen as key elements in improving the quality and quantity of the evidence base available to inform policy development work.
