Today marks 4 years of COST Action VascAgeNet! This word cloud represents key words our amazing members associate with us – a beautiful reflection of our shared values and goals! Thank you all for your dedication. Here’s to many more years of collaboration and friendship.
An important step for securing the sustainability of VascAgeNet, which ends in May 2024, were our discussions and negotiations with the Artery Society to integrate activities and working groups into the structures of the Artery Society (as informed earlier). Finally, the merge was finalized, documents signed and announced at the Artery 23 conference in the Annual Business Meeting of the Artery Society. So, we are happy to announce that our
We just returned from the Artery 23 conference, which we have co-organized with the Artery Society and DeGAG. The conference was a full success especially due to all the contributions by and the participation of VascAgeNet participants. Thanks a lot and it was great meeting at the conference! Some highlights were the following sessions and invited talks organized by VascAgeNet: The VascAgeNet Roundtable “Translational Science in Vascular Ageing” with four
Christopher C. Mayer (Chair of VascAgeNet) was invited to the conference “Life Sciences Baltics” (20-21/09/2023; Vilnius, Lithuania, https://lifesciencesbaltics.com/). It was a great opportunity to present VascAgeNet and the results of the COST Action in the invited talk “Vascular ageing: Moving from bench towards bedside”. Thanks to Vaidotas Marozas, Director of the Biomedical Engineering Institute at Kaunas University of Technology (Kaunas, Lithuania) for the opportunity
We are happy to announce that our Science Buddy Program is online!!! It includes educational material for children a virtual letter box to ask our VascAgeNet scientists questions about healthy arteries, healthy living, or just science in general an animation for children, and a cartoon board to explain the overall concept of vascular ageing Please check all information out and interact with us!

After the successful third VascAgeNet training school, we had our annual large WG Meeting in Limassol, Cyprus. The meeting was used to move all VascAgeNet activities forward, to plan new activities, to discuss the future of VascAgeNet, to meet colleagues and friends from all over Europe, to exchange and create new ideas, to enjoy Limsassol, the beach, and to have some social events (e.g., dinner, sport) together. We used the
The 3rd VascAgeNet training school ended today. We welcomed 30 young researchers from 16 EU countries with a broad and excellent training program, and nice social events! Thanks to the COST Association for allowing us to train the next generation of researchers in vascular ageing! Thanks to the speakers, participants, organizers and the local organizing committee!!!5

VascAgeNet participants were very active at this year’s Artery 22, the annual conference of the Association for Research into Arterial Structure and Physiology. We had a networking dinner, a strategic WG meeting, a satellite symposium, an oral presentation about the awareness and perception, the launch of our new animation, a poster on the regulatory survey, ITC Grants, lots of interesting discussions, fun at the conference dinner, a strategic meeting with
