Welcome to Stockholm 27th Congress of Gerontology

Ageing in a transforming world

Welcome to the 27th Nordic Congress of Gerontology in Stockholm, Sweden, June 12-14, 2024

Her Majesty the Queen inaugurates NKG2024

The Organising Committee is proud to announce that Her Majesty the Queen will open the Nordic Congress of Gerontology 2024.

On behalf of the Swedish Gerontological Society, the Swedish Geriatric Association, Karolinska Institutet, and the Nordic Gerontological Federation (NGF), we invite you to join the 27th Nordic Congress of Gerontology (NKG) to share your knowledge and engagement with ageing in a transforming world.

The world is constantly changing, but recent crises including climate change, the pandemic and wars suggest rapid and profound transformations in living conditions. During such challenging periods, certain groups in the population including older adults and frail individuals may be particularly susceptible to negative consequences.

At the 27th NKG congress, we want to explore how researchers from different scientific disciplines and practitioners can come together to bring new insights that facilitate better living conditions for older adults and contribute to the sustainable development of current and future generations. We believe that the Nordic countries can take a more active role in promoting healthy ageing globally. This includes being forerunners in research and practice on increasingly important issues with implications for older adults, such as equity, global health, living conditions, migration, welfare technology, and the organisation of health and social care.

We invite scholars, professionals, policymakers, NGOs, and other stakeholders to explore questions related to ageing in a world of profound transformations. Plenary lectures, symposia, oral sessions, posters, and exhibitions will reflect themes from different scientific disciplines and practice, on topics relevant to gerontology and geriatrics. We welcome multidisciplinary contributions reflecting the pillars of the NGF’s scientific orientations: behavioural and social sciences; biological, health and medical sciences; humanities; social research, policy, and practice. There will also be an enjoyable social programme.

The congress will be located at Karolinska Institutet (KI), one of the world’s leading medical universities. KI Solna campus is just 10 minutes from Stockholm city. We hope that you will find time to enjoy what Stockholm has to offer, including its sights and attractions, shopping areas, night life and beautiful surroundings. For those with more time, the wonderful country of Sweden rewards exploration.

We look forward to welcoming you to Stockholm in 2024!
