June 8-12, 2015

The VIU Summer Institute on ageing is intended to deepen the understanding of the ageing process ranging from some basic notions of the medical and epidemiological literature, to an extensive treatment of economics (pensions and retirement, ageing in society and intergenerational relationships) and social sciences (role of family networks). Special attention will be devoted to ICT, "domotics" and "intelligent homes" as a way to cope with ageing.

Who is it for:
The Summer Institute is addressed mainly to graduate and PhD students in economics, medicine, political science, psychology and sociology. Moreover, high level policy makers and high level officials in public and private institutions will be admitted if their background is adequate.
