here. - 23rd Nordic Congress of Gerontology

Proposal for Sponsorship
On behalf of the Nordic Gerontological Federation (Nordisk Gerontologisk Förening), we have the pleasure of
inviting you to take part in the Congress as a sponsor.
You will have an excellent opportunity to present your products and services to the Congress participants, to
meet Nordic and international decision makers and opinion leaders, and to profile your organization at the
highest level of research and policy on ageing.
The 23rd Nordic Congress of Gerontology (23 NKG) will take place in Tampere, Finland, 19–22 June 2016.
Congress theme and participants
The congress theme ‘Good ageing – better society’, reflects our growing understanding of ageing and older
people as an integral part of our societies, and the importance of well-being in old age to all age groups. The
conference promotes awareness of gerontological research as a tool for reaching the full potential of longer
lives. Around 700 participants from all over the world but especially from the Nordic countries, Europe and the US are
expected to participate in the 23 NKG in Tampere. The Nordic Congress of Gerontology has developed to one of
the most important European meetings in the field of ageing research and is well-known for its multidisciplinary
approach and pleasant atmosphere. The participants are researchers from medicine, health, social sciences, and
services research; experts and decision makers on international, national and local level, as well as companies
and NGOs working in the field of ageing.
The Congress venue
The Congress venue will be the Congress and Concert Centre Tampere Hall, located close to the city centre
as well as to the University of Tampere main building and many hotels. Tampere Hall has hosted hundreds of
international congresses within science, economics, culture and politics, and five times it has voted Finland’s best
congress center. Tampere Hall offers a spacious exhibition area full of light. Congress coffees and lunches will be
served in the exhibition area to guarantee the best possible visibility for the exhibited products and services.
Organizers
The Congress will be arranged in collaboration with the Gerontology Research Center (GEREC), which is a
collaborative effort in ageing research between the University of Tampere and University of Jyväskylä, and three
scientific societies in the field of ageing, Societas Gerontologica Fennica, the Finnish Society for Growth and
Ageing Research, and Finnish Geriatricians.
