From Biomedical and Life Course Factors
to Policy and Practice
This volume is proof of the success of long-lasting and major efforts to foster crossnational and cross-disciplinary ageing research in Europe. All first authors were funded or have been invited to take part in the framework of the European 3-year postdoctoral fellowship programme FLARE, Future Leaders of Ageing Research in Europe, coordinated by the European Research Area in Ageing (ERA-AGE), led by Prof. Alan Walker and his team at the University of Sheffield, UK. The main features of the FLARE programme are to promote both geographical and disciplinary mobility.
