Art of Ageing – International and Professional Training Conference for Active Seniors

22 AUGUST 2019 Hírek Faculty news

The Institute of Transdisciplinary Research of the University of Pécs, in cooperation with the Faculty of Health Sciences, is again organizing the Art of Ageeing Conference and Festival, the purpose of which is to recognize and celebrate the culture and research of our University, and to establish interactive cooperation – beyond demanding and understandable science communication – both within and outside the University.

The topic of this year’s Hungarian and English language international conference and art festival – just like that of the last year’s event – is “Art of Ageing”, which is not only interpreted as a biological process, but also as a general and universal process that indicates the passing of time.

The series of events will be held between 2 and 5 October, 2019 at several venues in Pécs, including also the Faculty of Health Sciences of the University of Pécs.


Purpose of the Conference:

Focusing on active ageing, the conference will address issues of vital importance to the health and quality of life of the elderly that will help to maintain a good quality of life as long as possible. The lecturers will give a national and international insight partly into the organized support opportunities available to active ageing, and will present specific sub-areas, such as: fallibility syndrome, generation problems, exercise programs, nutrition, etc.

Because of the wide, interdisciplinary character of the lectures, the lecturers provide an interesting experience both for the university students and the “civilian” population.
