Symposium on ageing research at Tampere University 2019

Towards better ageing through science and innovations!

Longevity is the greatest achievement of the humankind, and, currently, also a global challenge. Tampere University is a central hub, where versatile, interdisciplinary, and topical research on ageing and the ageing society is carried out. Much of this research takes place in interdisciplinary cross-sections that can also be the breeding ground for new break-through, and innovations. This symposium works towards increasing our academic community’s productivity and visibility of our research by cooperating and networking.

Come and meet other researchers and tell about your research! Let’s create new ways to meet the challenges of the ageing societies and strengthen multidisciplinary ageing research in Tampere University.

The TAU-AGE symposium will be organised on the city centre campus, Main building, Kalevantie 4. The programme of the symposium features plenary and thematic sessions as well as a poster session.
