ASC conducts leading-edge research on key social, political and cultural issues of ageing. While providing basic and advanced academic training within these fields, ASC also contributes to the proliferation of knowledge about ageing within society.
Against this backdrop, ASC is involved in several major research and training networks such as the COST Actions of Ageism and on Old-age Social Exclusion, the Swedish National Graduate School for Competitive Science on Ageing and Health (SWEAH) or the ‘International, multi-disciplinary, multi-sectoral training network on ageism’ EuroAgeism. Moreover, ASC is closely linked to the Journal of Aging and Social Change (JASC), which is edited at ASC. ASC is organizer of the LiU Interdisciplinary Seminar on Ageing Research (ISAR), which is run in close cooperation with IKE’s Division of Neuro and Inflammation Sciences (NIV).
