Two important trends in the development of the Dutch Association for Gerontology were the "medical approach" and the "societal approach".

In 1972, the NVG took the decision to set up the Dutch Institute of Gerontology (NIG). The aim was to further encourage the gerontological research. The actual start of the NIG was delayed until 1976. The establishment was marked a year later with the release of a report on the gerontological research and poor anchoring them within the universities in the Netherlands.
