Spotlight sessions

The spotlight sessions are 90 minutes long and will take place parallel to other activities. Our vision is that these will allow for more creative formats of scientific exchange, knowledge dissemination and dialogue compared to conventional paper presentations or symposia.

The chair of each session is invited by the NKG Organising Committee and will have the opportunity to design the program out of her/his own preferences. Sessions will tackle key topics linked to geriatrics and gerontology by well-known experts in the field bringing new insights to the subject.
