On March 12th, the Institute of Gerontology at The University of Tokyo Concluded an Amended Agreement with Kashiwa City and the Urban Renaissance Agency

It has been five years since Kashiwa City, The Institute of Gerontology at the University of Tokyo, and the Urban Renaissance Agency formed “The Toyoshikidai Three-party Research Agreement between Kashiwa City, the University of Tokyo, and the Urban Renaissance Agency” in order to promote collaborations. The initial period established for the agreement is drawing to a close, and thus a new agreement modifying the original agreement was established. The agreement includes two added articles: an article regarding lifestyle support services for the elderly and an article regarding health promotion and care prevention. Kashiwa City, the IOG, and the UR will engage in “Aging in Place” activities over the coming three years so that elderly people will be able to continue to live and age in their own home towns.
Please refer to the below link for details of the agreement.
