As a knowledge institute, Leyden Academy conducts scientific research on various topics focussed upon vitality and ageing. We believe that it is important that the knowledge we gain, finds it ways into the daily lives of the elderly. How can scientific insight be applied in practice and how can we maximise added value for the elderly, and for society? The team of Leyden Academy is involved in various projects and programmes, we develop concepts and submit them to be embedded into blueprints and training materials so that our partners can use them on a broader scale. Finally, we contribute our vision and insight to educational programmes for various audiences. All our activities align with our three focus areas.
