24rd Nordic Congress of Gerontology (24 NKG)

November 5, 2017

The 24th Nordic Congress of Gerontology (24 NKG) takes place on 2-4 May 2018 in Oslo, Norway. Plan now to attend the 24 NKG and visit Oslo next spring! Share the latest research findings and ideas, and meet old and new colleagues and friends. The theme for the 24 NKG – “Lessons of a life time” – indicates that not only the state of being old is important, but also the journey individuals and societies travel to get there. We want to take stock of current scientific knowledge on individual and societal ageing, and we also wish to take a critical look at where we need to focus in the future. In what way can hard-earned lessons provide the wisdom and knowledge to guide us to improve ageing in current and future populations? Participate in giving answers to these questions and join 24 NKG in Oslo in May 2018!

Deadline for abstracts Oral Presentations and Posters: 15. December 2017

A new Marie-Curie Innovative Ph.D. Training Program (ITN) funded by the European Commission under Horizon 2020 is opening up in the field of ageism. The overall goal of the program is to bridge between science and policy in the field of ageism and to produce professionals who can take a variety of positions, along the science-policy continuum. We are seeking 15 excellent early stage researchers (ESRs) for a 3-year fully funded Ph.D. program in the research areas of: Psychology, sociology, social psychology, political sciences, social work, economy, clinical pharmacy, engineering, design, social networks, geography, nursing, gerontology, gender studies, labor studies, anthropology, law and related fields.

The EuroAgeism network has 15 vacancies for highly skilled Ph.D. students. Our ESRs will be enrolled in a PhD programme which is supported by unique training that provides direct experience in policy, health and social care, and multi-disciplinary research. International training schools will be held for the development of transferable skills and to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between ESRs and policy stakeholders. Successful candidates will be paid a highly competitive salary for a period of three years.
The EuroAgeism consortium is a €4 million Marie Skłodowska-Curie– Innovative Training Network (ITN) – funded by the European Commission, under the H2020 program and coordinated by Bar Ilan University. The consortium is composed of academic, governmental, non-governmental, inter-governmental, and health and social care organizations.
