The target phenomenon of LIFE is the development of human behavior from infancy to old age. LIFE takes an integrative and interdisciplinary approach to identifying, understanding, and possibly ameliorating the mechanisms and conditions that shape the human life course. It actively promotes international networking and communication as an integral part of graduate training.
