Örebro University’s strategic initiative on Successful Ageing currently consists of two graduate research schools focusing on interdisciplinary collaboration between the university’s three faculties:

In the Successful ageing, graduate school research is being carried out on ageing and the opportunities offered by successful ageing. We are developing theories on Successful ageing and relating them to a contemporary Nordic perspective. The graduate school is international with 18 doctoral students from several different countries. The PhD students spend four years on their own research while part of the programme’s graduate school.

The Newbreed PhD programme is partly financed by the EU Horizon 2020 programme, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programmes (MSCA COFUND). During 2018, 16 international doctoral students were hired from 14 different countries.
