A Roadmap for Ageing Research in Europe
Since September 2009, the department is significantly involved in the “FUTURAGE” project, which is funded by the European Commission and whose goal consists in drawing a „European Roadmap for Ageing Research“ for the next 15-20 years. For that purpose, a workshop has been effected from March 3th to 5th 2010 at the “Internationales Wissenschaftsforum” from the University of Heidelberg with the participation from about 40 European and Non-European aging specialists. A second workshop occurred from June 16th to 18th 2010 in Lund, Sweden.
The "Roadmap" presented to the European Parliament on October 18th 2011 can be find here.
