At the research school on Successful Ageing, we develop theories on ageing and opportunities for the ageing, and explain them from a contemporary Nordic perspective.
Successful Ageing is an international research school, with doctoral students from several countries.
The initiative is an interdisciplinary cooperation between all three faculties, and includes 18 doctoral students. The doctoral students pursue their own research for four years, while also being part of the programme’s research school.
Successful ageing will be coordinated with the doctoral programme, Newbreed, where applicable. Beginning 2018, there will be an additional 16 international doctoral students employed in the Newbreed programme, funded by the European Commission.
