Welcome to CASE!

Centre for Ageing and Supportive Environments
CASE is one of two national centres of excellence for research on ageing and older people, funded by the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare (Forte - former FAS). 

CASE consists of teams from the Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Social Sciences at Lund University. Activities have focused on older people at the individual, group, and population levels and on environments that support health, activity, and participation. 

The research is explicitly interdisciplinary in nature with extensive international cooperation. A Graduate School is integrated with the centre.
