EU-sponsored 2-week Intensive Programme for Master and PhD students
2 to 14 June, 2014 - RIMINI (Italy)


This 2-week programme is aimed both at Master and PhD students, and at researchers interested in deepening their knowledge in the science of ageing.

Course completion will award 4 credits to students coming from the institutions that recognize the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS).

Ageing is one of the most challenging issues of our society. Next generation researchers should be guided to tap into the potential offered by the demographic change and the accompanying economic and social developments in the future. Understanding of ageing mechanisms is of utmost importance and should tightly be connected to the clinical needs. Next generation researchers in the field of ageing should be equipped with state of the art knowledge about the biology of ageing, insights into the clinical ageing phenotype and leadership expertise. By bringing together experts of these fields, Europe invests in the next generation leaders in biology of ageing, building the base to extend healthy lifespan.
