Brussels Declaration for Radical Healthspan Extension
Oct 30, 2016  

IEET Advisor Didier Coeurnelle has been organizing the Eurosymposium on Healthy Ageing, which has now adopted a Declaration that individuals can sign and endorse.


At the end of the three days of the European Symposium on Healthy Ageing, the participants adopted the Declaration below. This is an important step to make the fight against aging more attractive and concrete.

You can sign the Declaration by sending an email to the address info@heales.irg (please mention “I sign the Brussels Declaration”).

The defeat of aging lies within our collective grasp. It’s time to seize this remarkable opportunity.

This 1st of October 2016, during International Longevity Day, the Eurosymposium on Healthy Ageing (EHA) meeting in Brussels proclaims the possibility and the imperative of a moonshot project to overcome all age-related diseases within 25 years by tackling aging as their root cause.

The result will be a world:

- Where healthcare is far less expensive
- Where human well-being can be radically extended
- Where people place greater value on the environment and on peace, in view of their expectation of much longer lives
- Where the right to life is more precious than ever, because life is longer.

Key steps in this initiative will include:

- A paradigm shift stressing the need for research on aging itself, rather than only on individual diseases of old age
- The removal of regulatory and other barriers which prevent or disincentivize companies from developing treatments for aging itself
- An accelerated program to test anti-aging interventions on a much larger scale than anything that exists at the moment, leading to multiple human clinical trials of genuine rejuvenation biotechnologies by 2021.

These programs will require a coordinated effort at national and international level, integrating diverse existing and novel research approaches. They need to be financed by both public and private organizations, and create inclusive, affordable solutions available on equal terms to everybody.


Didier Coeurnelle, conseiller à l’IEET, a été parmi les principaux organisateurs de l’Eurosymposium on Healthy Ageing qui a adopté une déclaration que chacun peut signer.

A l’issue des trois journées de l’Euroymposium on Healthy Ageing”, les participants ont adopté la déclaration ci-dessous (texte original en anglais sur le site de l’EHA). C’est un pas important pour rendre la lutte contre le vieillissement plus attractive et plus concrète.

Vous pouvez signer la déclaration en envoyant un courriel à l’adresse (merci de mentionner “Je signe la déclaration de Bruxelles”).


La défaite du vieillissement est à notre portée à tous. Il est temps de saisir cette remarquable opportunité.

Ce 1er octobre 2016, durant la Journée internationale de la longévité, l’Eurosymposium on Healthy Ageing, réuni à Bruxelles, proclame la possibilité et l’impératif d’un projet d’envergure planétaire pour surmonter toutes les maladies liées à l’âge dans les 25 prochaines années, en s’attaquant au vieillissement en tant que cause de ces maladies.

Le résultat sera un monde :

• Où les soins de santé seront beaucoup moins chers
• Où le bien-être humain pourra être radicalement étendu
• Où les gens accorderont une plus grande valeur à l’environnement et à la paix, grâce à leur espérance de vie beaucoup plus longue
• Où le droit à la vie sera plus précieux que jamais, parce que la vie sera plus longue.
