Our Aim & Mission
With a view to informing a holistic understanding of later life in public policy, the ICSG conducts research on ageing and the life course that responds to gaps in scientific knowledge, policy and practice, while promoting the diversity of ageing experiences.

The ICSG hosts and Chairs two European COST Actions which are innovative research and networking platforms funded by the COST Association.
