Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the IGS has had to defer its Annual and Scientific Meeting.  In its place, we have developed the IGS Online Scientific Programme 2020/2021 under the following umbrella theme: 

Changing Horizons in Gerontology

 United in Solidarity with Older People

Under this banner, for the duration of our membership year, we will deliver a series of online educational, research and networking events for our members.  These will include symposia, lectures (including our annual ALONE Willie Bermingham Lecture), special interest group meetings, and other events.
