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.
