The 2nd European Conference on Aging & Gerontology (EGen2021)
October 21-23, 2021 | Held online from the Bartlett Real Estate Institute, UCL, London, UK
We are very excited to host The 2nd European Conference on Aging & Gerontology (EGen2021), the sister conference to The Asian Conference on Aging & Gerontology (AGen), which has been held in Japan since 2015.
As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, EGen2021 will again be held entirely online, giving delegates the opportunity to participate from anywhere in the world, no matter their situation.
IAFOR has joined efforts with The Bartlett Real Estate Institute at UCL, UK, the National Archive of Computerized Data on Aging (NACDA) at the University of Michigan, the IAFOR Research Centre at OSIPP, Osaka University, Japan, the Agile Aging Alliance (AAA), UK, and academic leaders and thinkers of all disciplines from a wide range of prestigious institutions to host a conference that brings together all disciplines to discuss one of the greatest challenges humanity currently faces: the ageing of the population. Scholars from practically every discipline are welcomed to bring their perspective, as ageing involves almost all aspects of humanities, science and policy.
Our previous EGen event was held at The Bartlett Real Estate Institute, UCL, in 2019 and featured special keynote presentations from Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro (Osaka University, Hiroshi Ishiguro Laboratories), Professor James Barlow (Imperial College London, UK), Professor Paul Higgs (UCL, UK), Professor Nick Tyler (UCL, UK), Professor Haruko Satoh (Osaka University, Japan) and Professor Tsuyoshi Sekitani (Osaka University, Japan) together with other highly prominent academics.

With thematic streams covering many disciplines such as the built environment, frailty, loneliness, the silver economy, and others, EGen2021 will again provide a great opportunity for researchers.
