Deadline: 11 April 2016

2nd CALL FOR RESEARCH PROPOSALS OF THE JPI MYBL IS EXPECTED TO BE LAUNCHED ON 18th January 2016
Short Call Abstract:
2nd JPI MYBL CALL TOPIC:
Welfare, Wellbeing and Demographic Change: Understanding Welfare Models
Proposals may address one or more of these three research topics:
a) Understanding wellbeing: how appropriate are current measures of wellbeing across the changing life-course?
b) Intergenerational relationships: how can welfare models distribute resources, rights and responsibilities in fair and sustainable ways?
c) Welfare models: How can welfare models secure the health and wellbeing for older people confronted to caring needs, subject to frailty and nearing the end of life?
The aim of the call is to support research which will improve the understanding of how different approaches to welfare secure the quality of life, especially on older people. The objective is to develop comparative perspectives on “welfare models”, and the ways in which they are changing, drawing on the great diversity of approaches to welfare across Europe and Canada.
A better understanding of these differences can help policymakers to identify potential ways of meeting needs, as their own models evolve in response to changing demographic pressures and circumstances. Because welfare models involve a complex interaction of public, private and voluntary activity, understanding them, their impact and the ways in which they are changing, will draw on expertise from many academic disciplines. Therefore proposals shall have an interdisciplinary nature.
