Centre of Excellence in Research on Ageing and Care 


Centre of Excellence in Research on Ageing and Care (CoE AgeCare) is one of the 12 Centres of Excellence that the Academy of Finland has chosen for the period 2018-2025. CoEs are flagships of Finnish research that are expected to carve out new avenues for research, develop creative research environments and train new talented researchers.  

CoE AgeCare studies the transformation of ageing and care using novel conceptual and interdisciplinary perspectives, conjoining the analysis of diversification of everyday life to that of ongoing profound societal and policy change. The CoE combines scholarship from social policy, sociology and gerontology, analysing older people’s care needs, agency and equality as well as the changing character of care work in the context of transnationalisation and digitalisation of the ageing society. 

GEREC collaborates closely with the CoE AgeCare.
