Welcome to EGREPA!

EGREPA is the European Group for Research into Elderly and Physical Activity.

The research area of Physical Activity for the elderly is a rapidly growing field. The European Group for Research into Elderly and Physical Activity (EGREPA) was born during the Third International Conference on Physical Activity, Aging and Sport, held at the University of Jyvaskyla, Finland, in 1992.

At this meeting it was recognized that there was a need for an European international scientific organization which would deal with these concerns. Since that moment EGREPA has organized and collaborated in a series of events aimed at achieving its founding objectives.

EURAPA is an official publication of the European Group for Research into the Elderly and Physical Activity (EGREPA). It publishes scientific reviews and original contributions in relation to aging and physical activity for researchers and practitioners wishing to look beyond the borders of their specialization. The journal aims to provide an international forum for the advancement of our understanding of the relationships between aging and physical activity. Research approaches in the field of aging and physical activity emerge from several disciplines and the scope of EURAPA encompasses biomedical as well as behavioral sciences. It covers topics ranging from biochemistry, biomechanics, clinical sciences, ethics and philosophy, exercise science, genetics, geriatrics, gerontology, immunology, health, motor learning and motor control, orthopaedics, research methods, nutrition, physiology, psychology, and sociology. In addition to being a platform for established research groups, the journal invites novice researchers to submit reviews or original papers.
