On behalf of the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics – European Region we welcome you to Gothenburg and the 9th IAGG-ER congress to present and share findings, ideas and innovations on multidisciplinary perspectives of ageing and the life-course.

The congress theme is ‘Towards Capability in Ageing – from cell to society‘. The theme emphasizes our ability to perform actions in order to reach valued goals within the macro, meso, and micro contexts.

The congress is the natural meeting place for researchers and professionals engaged in various scientific enquires and aging matters; whether in biological science, medical and health sciences, social sciences, in humanities or aging services. The main track of the congress includes sessions on multidisciplinary aspects of aging in which we can meet and learn from each other.
