Invitation for the international conference, “Horizons for Comparative and Integrative Research on Ageing and Health,” in Stockholm, Sweden, October 7-8, 2015.

We would like to invite you to the international conference, “Horizons for Comparative and Integrative Research on Ageing and Health,” in Stockholm, Sweden, October 7-8, 2015.The conference is funded by the Swedish Research council and organized by the three Swedish national centres of excellence for ageing research (CASE, ARC, AgeCap).
The programme is based on the idea that we gain new knowledge from research by applying comparatative and integrative perspectives on ageing and health. The ambition is to nurture a broad scientific discussion on ageing and health between senior and junior researchers from various disciplines and different countries across Europe.
In addition, a Post Conference Workshop will be held on October 9, 2015 for PhD students. It is arranged by the Swedish National Graduate School for Competitive Science on Ageing and Health (SWEAH), and PhD students are invited to a thematic workshop on theories of ageing. The workshop will include presentations and discussions led by senior scientists and PhD students affiliated to the specific SWEAH Curriculum.
There is no registration fee for the conference, but delegates are responsible for the costs of their own travel and accommodations.
