DUCAH's work is based on the recognition that population aging is one of the most important challenges of our time. The increase in older people presents challenges not only for the healthcare system, but also for society as a whole. DUCAH works to develop innovative solutions to meet the needs of older people and enable them to live active, healthy and satisfied lives in urban environments. From this we derive our motivation and basic principles.
