The Fundació Salut i Envelliment sets off

On October 15th, 2014, the setting up of the new foundation (Fundació Salut i Envelliment de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) has been completed, as a result of the fusion process of three of the existing UAB foundations (Fundació Doctor Robert, Fundació Josep Laporte and Fundació Institut Català de l'Envelliment).

The Fundació Salut i Envelliment de la UAB is a non-profit organization, governed by the 4/2008 Bill of April 24th, of the Book 3 of the Catalan Civil Code, related to legal entites, and its main goal is to collaborate with the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona in promoting and carrying out activities in the fields of health sciences, aging, and social and health care.
