SWEAH welcomed everyone who works with aging and health at the partner universities to participate in the conference. The conference gave the participants the opportunity to take part in research on aging and health in many different disciplines. Current and former SWEAH-affiliated doctoral students and their supervisors told about ongoing research and also other invited researchers contributed with presentations.
