Welcome lAUTA

As president of I.A.U.T.A. (The International Association of Universities of the Third Age), I would like to welcome all current members of our association as well as future members.

I.A.U.T.A. brings together the universities of the third age from all the continents. For four decades I.A.U.T.A. has been defending elderly people’s cause through life-long education by means of university exchanges and, above all, innovations in the fields of education and scientific research in order for everyone to find their place in society.

Dear friends of the Universities of Thrid Age, these are ambitious propositions that require the contribution of all of us in order for our association to play a role that should be essential throughout the world. So again “Welcome” to all of our members at I.A.U.T.A. as well as those who will read our site and wish to join us, and to you as well, “Welcome”.

Professor François Vellas
