The Institute for Research on Productive Aging (IRPA) was established to promote research on aging and life expectancy in Japan and to present Japan as a model for a healthy and long-lived nation to the world, with the aim of brightening the future of Japanese society, which is inevitably entering a super-aging society, through the power of science. In addition, we believe that one of the important missions of this organization is to implement the results of aging research in society without delay and to give back to people around the world. The main activities are listed on the right.
