Longevity is one of the most topical phenomena of our age, bringing about profound changes on the social, cultural, medical and scientific level. Every stage of our life is undergoing deep transformations as traditional roles and phases evolve, with largely unexplored consequences from a demographic, economic and biological perspective.
the ninth edition of “the Future of Science” World conference will attempt to unveil the secrets of longevity. From 19th to 21st September, join some of the world’s leading experts on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice to learn about the most pressing issues arising from a longer lifespan.
