International Alliance

Introduction to International Cooperation Activities

Just as the term “Global Aging” implies the aging of the population is a phenomenon that is advancing around the world.  Aging in Asia is progressing at a particularly fast  pace on a large-scale, and the social impact of this demographic change is beyond measure.  At the Institute of Gerontology, as a member of university alliances in which the University of Tokyo participates and as a member of international forums, we are taking an active lead in addressing the global aging issue and engaging proactively in exchanges of human resources and exchange of knowledge. Through the holding and planning of international conferences and workshops we are working to transmit a message around the world about the efforts in Japan and Asia to resolve the various challenges posed by global aging. international2
