CDI fellow - Knox Active Ageing Advisory Committee
by Dr. Michael Lo Bianco 16 Mar 2017
CDI research fellow, Mr. Michael Lo Bianco, is now a member on the Knox Active Ageing Advisory Committee (KAAAC).
KAAAC was established in 2010 to provide advice to Knox City Council on services, programs and issues which support active ageing in the community. The main purpose of the committee is to provide feedback and advice, obtained from engagement with older people and other key stakeholders, to support the decision making of Council.
Michael is appointed as an industry member, representing Swinburne University of Technology, due to his relevant expertise and experience in the field of active ageing and aged services. His expertise is needed in areas of policy and research, service planning and/or provision. He has also lived within Knox City for his whole life.
The role provides a platform upon which Michael's research within CDI's Future Self and Design Living Lab can be implemented into practice. Additionally, the role facilitates research networks whilst promoting the CDI and Living Lab to a new group of likeminded individuals and organisations.
