The Finnish Institute of Occupational Health (FIOH) will organise on 26-28 August 2013 the international symposium “Work, Wellbeing and Wealth: Active Ageing at Work.”
The vision of “an active life while ageing” is becoming one of the major social challenges 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 is to bring together researchers, experts and European networks in the area and to present and discuss the major research & development needs and solutions.
