A few weeks from now, Heales, the Healthy Life Extension Society will host a Eurosymposium on Healthy Ageing in Brussels, Belgium. Heales sets its claim as the largest European longevity advocacy group:
Heales is the largest non-profit organisation in Continental Europe promoting and advocating scientific research into longevity and biogerontology (the science of aging). We are a group of biologists, biochemists, medical doctors and diverse other professions throughout Europe.
The December symposium will be a three day affair, and you may recognize some of the names in the program - noted folk from the longevity science community. The presentation abstracts make for good reading, and there is still time to register online if you plan to be in that part of the world next month.
Heales (Healthy Life Extension Society) in cooperation with the Leiden Academy on Vitality and Ageing is organizing the Eurosymposium on Healthy Ageing on December 12th to 14th in the Royal Library in Brussels. An international set of well recognized biogerontologists will discuss the latest advances in ageing research and offer pathways for future innovation.
Having followed the evolution of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing we have reached the conclusion that biology of ageing needs to be highlighted more clearly as an important solution. Innovations based on biology of ageing can contribute to improve healthy life in a very significant way and we want to address this message to the European Union through this conference.
In this conference, we will let scientists explain how their research contributes or can contribute to extend the healthy lifespan of European citizens; we will put scientists, entrepreneurs, medical doctors and other key actors together to build the business of long term health, towards a living Europe rather than a dying Europe. We hope that policy makers and people who work for the European Union will be interested and will further help biology of aging reach concrete implementations.
