Science & Society
Words such as "challenges" or "difficulties" are often linked to the phenomenon of our aging society. But why does the lifespan continually increase? What does this mean for society and economics? What opportunities does the demographic change offer?
With the public lecture series "Science & Society", the Leibniz Institute on Aging (FLI) and the Leibniz Research Alliance Healthy Ageing together with the Beutenberg-Campus e.V. want to add a social perspective to the aging research in Jena.
