Past event: Active Ageing - the Potential for Society

Net4Society hosted a transnational research event, coinciding with the ESOF Dublin City of Science programme. The event was themed around the 2012 European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations.

Net4Society, the network of National Contact Points, supporting and promoting Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) researchers’ engagement in FP7, hosted a transnational research and brokerage event, which was an official satellite event of the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF). The event was themed around the 2012 European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations and focused on the human and social aspects and implications of active ageing.

The event, attended by approximately 150 researchers, policymakers and stakeholders from the international SSH community, did showcase a positive approach to ageing and its potential for society, presenting international SSH research in this field and identified future research needs. In addition, it promoted and encouraged engagement with FP7 SSH research programmes through a brokerage event that was part of the conference programme. 

Thematic sessions were based on the following four key topics:

• Employment
• Social participation
• Intergenerational solidarity
• Economy and innovation
