IAGG blows its 60 candles in the presence of Mr. Yves LETERME, Prime Minister of Belgium. The Association was founded in July 1950, when a group of twenty multidisciplinary international researchers (demographers, sociologists, biologists, physiologists…) met in Liège, Belgium. Their aim: get a comprehensive understanding of the Ageing process by studying all its different components. Since, IAGG has become an international organization, with 71 national societies members representing 64 countries over five continents: Europe, North America, South America, Asia/Oceania and more recently Africa. Today, it represents more than 40.000 practitionners around the world.
