The mission of the MOVE-AGE joint PhD programme is to provide a reference for structured doctoral training in the field of ageing and mobility by:

  • developing and expanding a knowledge base for basic understanding of factors limiting and enhancing mobility in an ageing population,
  • developing and disseminating methods and tools for integrative study of human mobility,
  • establishing structured links between scientists, health care and public health professionals, and related industry.

This will be achieved through original and independent research by the PhD students in a strong interactive, interdisciplinary and international network in which PhD students work closely together with basic scientists, engineers, and clinicians as well as SMEs and public health and health care professionals.
