An optimistic view of ageing

Ageing, a Fundación General CSIC strategic line.
Share |
With its strategic line on Ageing, the Fundación General CSIC aims to promote research and initiatives approaching the phenomenon from various angles. R&D on Ageing in Spain is aimed at a variety of audiences, but it is worth noting that there have been few attempts to address the issue in a transdisciplinary way. The majority of research to date has focused on specific aspects of the problem rather than take a holistic view of it.

For the Fundación General CSIC, ageing is a multifactorial and multifaceted issue. Multifactorial, because multiple factors determine and shape the ageing process; and multifaceted, because ageing has impacts in a wide range of areas (biomedical, social, psychological, economic, etc.).

The various activities the FGCSIC is running to accompany this strategic line include: FGCSIC seminar on ageing, a report on R&D in Spain, a video on ageing, the blog “Envejecer en positivo” and the 2011 Proyectos Cero call for proposals on Ageing.
