Improve Resilience to Manage an Ageing Europe
Ageing populations pose a major challenge to Western countries. Not just because as people get older they need structures that care for them, but also because they are getting older in an increasingly unpredictable world. The answer to this huge problem is designing policies that can help make people more resilient as they get older. This is the subject of a €3.1m project, called Towards a Resilient Future of Europe or, in short, FutuRes, financed by the EU within the Horizon program. Bocconi’s Arnstein Aassve of the Department of Social and Political Sciences is the Project Manager, overseeing a team with participants from seven other institutions across Europe with the aim of establishing an interdisciplinary laboratory that can provide insight and solutions.
