Institute for Ageing Research IAF
Solutions for the society of the future - effective, sustainable, and socially acceptable
Demographic change poses major challenges for our society, institutions and individuals. With innovative and applied research projects, our interdisciplinary team develops practical decision-making knowledge for policy-makers and institutions in order to develop sustainable solutions at a micro, meso and macro level.
We pursue a participatory research approach and work closely with an advisory board consisting of senior citizens: Not only is our aim to conduct research about older people, but also together with them. In addition, we offer counselling, further education, lectures and workshops on the topics of age and ageing.
