What is the workshop about?

This workshop will take place at the Aging Research Center of Karolinska Institutet from October 25th to 27th, 2017. The theme focuses on genetic and environmental factors for cognitive aging across Eastern-Western cultures. At the workshop, researchers from multi-disciplinary areas will share their aspects through various lectures, and we have also arranged the opportunities for junior researchers from both Sweden and China to communicate their research and build up network. For more information, please look at the attached full program.

The “Sino-Sweden Network for Aging Research” project

The “Sino-Sweden Network for Aging Research” project is a two-year collaborative project between Aging Research Center at Karolinska Institutet-Stockholm University and Institute of Psychology at Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing. The project is supported jointly by Swedish Research Council (VR) and National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). The goal of this project is to strengthen the existing network and bridge the knowledge gap between Eastern and Western societies regarding the effects of biomedical and environmental factors on the phenotypes of cognitive aging. To achieve the goal, we plan to organize two workshops with different themes in Stockholm (October 2017) and Beijing (October 2018) (see http://ki-su-arc.se/sino-sweden-research-network-on-aging/).
