Inserm sets retired researchers to work

Inserm, France’s national biomedical research agency, is seeking to turn retirement into “a new opportunity” for its staff by calling on them to work with patient groups.

The agency estimates that 300 of its researchers have or are due to retire between 2009 and 2013. It wants these retirees to build links with patient associations as part of the ScienSAs, a public engagement initiative designed to allow them to share their experiences with groups keen to know more about research. Retirees will take part in forums with associations and use their expertise to help patients understand the latest research and take a critical approach to reading about discoveries.
