Unit profile

The Applied Gerontology Research Group conducts inter- and transdisciplinary research related to older age and ageing with an emphasis on research that can be translated to practice and policy. By working across disciplines, across sectors, and with citizens and other stakeholders, we aim to develop and evaluate strategies to enhance opportunities for people to engage in valued life activities despite functional decline that may occur during the process of ageing. We strive to broaden the knowledge around the full complexity of real-life situations in order to develop solutions that can be broadly applied to prevent dependence and promote independence. Understanding individual abilities and limitation in combination with the social and environmental context where they live their everyday lives is central to our work. Our research includes quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods, and we use new ideas and methods in standardized or real environments representing daily life arenas.
