Report out now on Grand Aging Challenges for Europe

22 August 2013

The effects of aging on our societies and economies come in many shades. Living longer in better health is clearly a sign of success. Indeed, some sectors of our economies are set to profit from a rise in the number of older people. At the same time aging poses clear challenges, most notably rising public expenditure.

Coping with such problems, while capitalizing on opportunities, is a pressing task, in which research has a key role to play. To help societies become more resilient, this report identifies ways for Europe to rejuvenate research and tackle the challenge of aging.

Our report is complemented by a GeoRisQ Monitor, which maps the economic impact of aging with a specific focus on Europe. It consists of two parts. A first set of maps shows worldwide data on Old-age Dependency Ratios (OADR, the percentage of people 65 and older, over those between 14 and 65). A second set of maps looks at projected developments of aging-related public expenditure. The Monitor can be accessed by clicking here

Report: Detecting Elusive Criminals
