Research Activities

The Institute of Gerontology has set the following as a common theme for research projects: “Aging in Place: Creating communities where people can grow old in a manner that suits themselves, in the community where they have always lived.” Based on this theme an interdisciplinary team has been created and utilizing the knowledge gained from basic research and technology innovations, “social experiment/challenge solving-type” research projects will be advanced in local communities themselves, based on the following tasks:

  1. specifying challenges,
  2. launching a challenge-solving research project, and
  3. putting it into practice in society. research_01_en_k2
