Finnish Institute of Occupational Health (FIOH) - Work, Wellbeing and Wealth: Active Ageing at Work (Helsinki, 26-28 August 2013): Call for abstract

Deadline: March 15, 2013


The increasing societal costs of the expanding retired population are forcing industrialized countries to find new ways to increase production and to extend life-long work careers. Work careers can be extended at the beginning, middle, or at the end of the traditional working life, utilizing solutions on the borders of main-life transitions between education, labour market, unemployment, disability, private household and old age pension. The vision of "an active life while ageing" is becoming one of the major social chal-lenges in Europe. The European Union has launched the Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) "More Years, Better Lives – the Potential and Challenges of Demographic Change" in order to make a full impact assessment and development of appropriate answers to the upcoming demographic challenges. Among its five focus areas, a research agenda on "Work and Productivity" is under preparation.
The aim of the International Conference on "Work, Well-being and Wealth: Active Ageing at Work" is to bring together researchers, experts and European networks in the area and to present and discuss the major R&D needs and solutions.
