INVITATION

We cordially invite you to share and discuss your views on one of the most important and urgent issues – THE FUTURE OF AGEING. Most of us now expect to live a long life and will experience ageing and old age. Understanding the biological, biomedical, demographic and psycho-social aspects of ageing is the road to prepare for the future. Could we, would we, should we stop ageing partially or completely is the challenge to think about. Let us do it together. We look forward to welcoming you.

The list of topics to be discussed:

  1. What have we understood about ageing so far?
  2. What are the gaps in our present understanding of ageing?
  3. How age-related diseases are connected to the ageing process?
  4. Can ageing be postponed?
  5. How long should we live?
