About us

Our history

CENIE defines itself as a knowledge hub and is an organization promoted by the General Foundation of the University of Salamanca, which cooperates with the Economic and Social Councils of Spain and Portugal, together with the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança.

CENIE is a response to a socio-demographic reality that has to face new challenges and opportunities, for this purpose it promotes research programs, promotes actions that favor the change of perception in the relationship between age and economy, carrying out, among other actions, training and informative programs.

It is time to change the attitude towards aging and instead of improvising, to promote strategies on how to better optimize the additional decades of life that humanity has achieved with its advances. In this way, we can help people to live longer, more active and independent lives, and also contribute to making better use of the opportunities inherent in a rapidly changing society.
