Smart Ageing International Research Center

The Smart Ageing International Research Center was established on 1 October 2009 with the aim of promoting international cooperative research on “Smart Ageing” as explained below. It aims to encourage individuals and societies to cope effectively with the changes brought on by ageing, and to mature intellectually.


In Japan the percentage of elderly people aged 65 years or over was 25.1 % in 2013, an unprecedentedly high percentage, making Japan the world’s first super-aged society. In such a super-aged environment, it is necessary to form a society in which each individual can play an active role even as one becomes older, and in which people can share knowledge and wisdom regardless of their age and gender in order to maintain and improve the quality of life of all people and to maintain a healthy society.
