Mission

NOVA Ageing group is committed to increase research, knowledge and innovation in the field of aging and related conditions, towards an active and healthy aging.
We take advantage from different partners' background and skills, sharing knowledge and expertise, engage all, promoting events, meetings and research grants calls, and involving other stakeholders on innovative projects. The ultimate goal is to combat frailty, disability, multimorbidity, promoting a healthy life to older people, with better health and social systems, through innovative and excellence in research projects with local, national and international impact.
