Longevity+ Seminars

The Longevity Plus seminars are part of the research and dissemination activities of the research group "Longevity Plus: a transdisciplinary study of well-being", which is a part of CLEA. Speakers from different disciplines present systemic approaches to health, fitness and well-being, after which the research is discussed by the people attending. Seminars are normally recorded and can be watched on our YouTube playlist.

The seminars are organized by Dr. Shima Beigi. They usually take place on Tuesday afternoons every other week, and are free to attend for everybody. Please contact Dr. Beigi if you would like to present your work in this series.
