NEAR has been approved renewal of the research infrastructure grant by the Swedish Research Council (VR)!

We are happy to announce that the National E-infrastructure for Aging Research (NEAR) received the renewal of the research infrastructure grant by the Swedish Research Council (VR) for the period 2023-2028.

Laura Fratiglioni, current NEAR Director, expresses her satisfaction and states:

“This second grant allows us to consolidate and expand NEAR after the building phase that will be completed next year. We are aware of the challenges this new phase poses to the consortium and to us as researchers. However, we are confident that NEAR 2.0 will address all these challenges in the best way due to its strong scientific background, the consortium solidity and international profile, and its added values”.
