The Smart Ageing International Research Center (SAIRC) was founded on October 1st 2009. This center proposes the creation of a new field to solve various problems associated with the diverse and complex super-aging society.
Smart Aging College will aim at an innovative intergenerational school on
the campus to integrate potential of experienced older adults into social education for younger students.
The Division of Research and Development is designed to develop an approach for maintaining and improving brain and mental health from the standpoints of brain science, cognitive neuroscience and psychology.
Smart Aging Square will take a role to verify the feasibility of the cognitive training methods and of the economic effect due to the improving cognitive function and mental health of older adults.
The Division of Strategic Planning is responsible for promoting collaborative research with internationally cutting-edge organizations, interdisciplinary industry-academy collaboration, and intergenerational learning between older adults and younger students.
Comment from Prof. Kawashima
The restoration of Tohoku University from the last disaster is still in the begging process, and many buildings and research facilities are broken. The same is true for our Institute so that we are sure that it takes long time to return to the same research activities as previously. However, in our laboratory, we are so lucky that the damage is not too severe; therefore we could maintain levels of our research activity satisfactory even after the disaster. We feel it is our duty that we, who did not get severe damage, have to be more diligent, and produce more achievements than ever. I appreciate your continuous supports, and hope many young researchers and students will join our group.
