Aske Juul Lassen receives gerontology prize

On October 3rd 2014 Aske Juul Lassen received the Kirsten Avlund Gerontological Prize at the Danish Gerontological Society Conference in Middelfart, Fionia. The prize is a 10.000 DKK awarded to a young and promising research within the field of gerontology.

- Through ethnographic studies of the everyday life of elderly and documentation studies of policy papers and theories on ageing Aske has shown how active ageing is at the same time problematic and contains the potential to create good senior lives, the prize committee states and continues:

- Aske has also demonstrated that he is a motivated, dedicated, and entrepreneurial researcher and communicator within the field of gerontology, and with his very present topic (active ageing) and interdisciplinary orientation he deserves an encouragement in the form of the Kirsten Avlund Prize for continuing his work within gerontology.
