Senesciència (Senescence) is an electronic journal about active ageing and healthy living habits. Its contents on ageing will be drawn from the various knowledge areas in which this subject is studied: biomedicine and clinical experimentation, neurosciences, genetics and genomics, lifestyles and environmental factors, social and human sciences, psychological sciences, treatment and care, biological sciences and basic experimentation and infrastructure, among others.

The aim of the publication is to raise awareness of the need to promote active and healthy ageing to improve the population’s quality of life, delay the onset of dependency and thus ease the social and health system. This is an initiative of the HUBc international campus of excellence, which coordinates the interaction between hospitals, university faculties, research institutes, city councils and companies in the health sector in the surroundings of the University of Barcelona.
