Research project

AGE-NT - National Innovation Network "Age(n) in Society"

Switzerland's largest network for science and society on the topic of age(ing). In close cooperation with social institutions, the economy, science, politics and those affected, coordinated measures are developed to prepare for the life phase of old age (already from around 45).

Methodologically, AGE-NT is characterised by the explicit participatory inclusion of senior citizens, their relatives and other reference groups. Knowledge transfer and scientific progress are ensured through doctoral programmes, anchoring in teaching and further education, public conferences and other events. Further information can be found here.
