Meetings

Welcome to attend our NO-Age (Norwegian Centre on Healthy Ageing Network) and NO-AD Seminar Series. The Series are joint-organized by the University of Oslo (UiO), the University of Copenhagen (KU), the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) based on the established Hong Kong Nordic Research Network (https://noage100.com/the-hong-kong-nordic-research-network/), as well as the NO-Age (www.noage100.com) and the NO-AD (www.noad100.com), two Norway-based international networks. NTNU (Norway) and its affiliated two centres, the K.G. Jebsen Centre for Alzheimer´s Disease and the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience, joined in later as co-organizers.

All welcome (via the digital zoom meeting or though physical attendance as detailed in each seminar flier). Pre-registration is normally necessary.

Some of the previous talks have been recorded, please check here (the VIDOES)
