Healthy Ageing 2-6 July 2018

Ageing is related to problems both at societal as well as at individual level. Healthy ageing is part of the solution, and various disciplines are engaging in healthy ageing research, including social sciences, demography, biomedical sciences, and public health. The main goal of the Healthy Ageing Summer School is that students gain insight into the healthy ageing obtained by these different disciplines, ranging from cell to society. The School strives for scientific co-operation and pre- and post-graduate education at an international level, trying to attract students already interested in research. The intentions are to stimulate students interest in research from an early stage on, to allow master students the opportunity to get an overview of and explore the possibilities of healthy ageing research in Groningen and to encourage contact between students and research project leaders. The school also aids in recruiting young potentials, i.e. enthusiastic and talented students who are attracted by interdisciplinary approaches to scientific research.
