GERDA – Gerontological Regional Database
GERDA is a cross-border, interdisciplinary research collaboration between Umeå University in Sweden and Åbo Akademi University, Novia University of Applied Sciences, Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences, and Åland University of Applied Sciences in Finland. We have together collected several rounds of data on different aspects of health and living conditions among older adults. Thus far, these collections have resulted in among other things 30 doctoral theses and over a hundred scientific articles. Our goal is to promote a good aging through knowledge exchange, cooperation, research, and dissemination.
