Welcome to Copenhagen in 2012

On behalf of the organising committee we invite you to the 21st Nordic Congress of Gerontology in Copenhagen, Denmark in June 10th - 13th, 2012.

The congress theme Dilemmas in Ageing Societies points to challenges of ageing societies and questions that arise from theory and empirical studies about ageing and older people’s lives. Although most people live longer, there is an increasing polarization of health and living conditions. What are the main dilemmas as we take a closer look at men and women, rich and poor, or at different ethnic and religious groups?
How are dilemmas of a problem-oriented perspective versus a focus on resources balanced, evidence based knowledge versus practical options in every day life, technology versus human resources?

This interdisciplinary congress will include several aspects of gerontology and geriatric medicine and all sessions are in English. This provides the opportunity to exchange knowledge and ideas with participants from outside the Nordic countries. Read more
