Dear Colleagues

On behalf of the Irish Gerontological Society and the networks of researchers and educators active across the island of Ireland, Ireland is proud to host the IAGG-ER 2015 Congress in Dublin. 

The Irish Gerontological Society is an all-island society (Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland) and is one of the oldest societies in the world dedicated to research in ageing. It is a strongly interdisciplinary Gerontological society, with all four pillars of gerontology represented in its governance and membership, and a strong belief that progress in making an age-attuned world on a scientific basis lies in ensuring equipoise and mutually respectful relationships between the interlocking pillars of gerontology. This is a position it has promoted in its communications and engagement with the IAGG and IAGG-ER over many years.
