Global Centre for Modern Ageing

Global Centre for Modern Ageing

The Global Centre for Modern Ageing (GCMA) is not-for-profit and our purpose is to improve  the lives of older people.

Through advocacy, market development, partnerships, research and learning, we help organisations and individuals to devise, build and commercialise products and services that allow older people to live and age well.

We have deep expertise in end-user experience research, which brings fresh, evidence-based insights to the Ageing Well industry.


Our internationally accredited, award-winning Living Laboratory is a leading, real-time test facility that allows organisations to invent and trial products and services in a simulated ‘real-life’ environment. It produces best-in-class research outcomes to help improve the lives of older people.


We conduct two key streams of research:

Public-benefit research projects – including our 2020 Ageing in the Right Place : An Australian Perspective, and our 2020 COVID-19 Study. Our work builds knowledge and provides evidence to inform decision-making. Our public-benefit research informs the development of policies, products and services to positively impact the lives of older people now and in the future.

Bespoke research projects for clients. The projects are aligned with the GCMA’s core operations and our charitable purpose of advancing the Ageing Well industry.
