Health and Ageing

Assuming that the problems posed by health and ageing are complex, that require capacity to deal with uncertainty and change, and from a scientific and practical point of view they cross disciplinary boundaries, transdisciplinary skills are required which, based on collaboration and creativity, redefine and reframe them and design meaningful solutions.


Transdisciplinary competencies require:

  • integration of problem framing and problem solving,
  • communication and collaboration between people of different disciplines and educational levels, and
  • intelligent use of technologies and resources

By combining these competences, it is intended to support the construction of collective knowledge and increase the capacity for solving human problems.
