2. International Symposium Healthy Ageing

Date(s) - 27/02/2017 - 28/02/2017

Leibniz-Institut für Neurobiologie

Healthy Ageing – living free of diseases, functional decline, and disabilities as long as possible while keeping up high levels of well-being – should be an achievable goal for most older people in modern industrialized societies. In order to achieve this goal interdisciplinary research is required to obtain knowledge and environmental factors promoting the preservation of health, which can be used to develop novel strategies for intervention.

To address these challenges, the Leibniz Research Alliance Healthy Ageing (LRA Healthy Ageing) was formed in 2013. It consists of 21 institutes of the Leibniz Association and combines expertise in life sciences, psychology, education science, sociology, and economics covering a very broad and comprehensive scientific spectrum in a unique manner. To stimulate, facilitate and intensify scientific collaborations within the LRA across the various disciplines, the LRA Healthy Ageing will meet at the 2nd International Symposium Healthy Ageing. Registration is open and will end on 30 January 2017.
