The European Commission, UNECE, the University of the Basque Country, the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing, with the support of the Government of Biscay (Spain), are organising a Second International Seminar on the Active Ageing Index (AAI) in Bilbao in September 2018.
The seminar will provide a multidisciplinary forum for those interested in:
- the use of AAI to enhance knowledge about ageing and older people and the development of better policies
- learning more about how to use composite measures, and the AAI in particular, for development and monitoring of policy measures in such multifaceted socio-economic phenomena as active ageing.
Around 40 research papers on different aspects of application of the AAI will be presented for discussion with stakeholders. Policymakers will get an opportunity to learn more about active ageing and how AAI can be used in various contexts for policy analysis and monitoring.
The seminar will provide a variety of opportunities for interaction between participants, one of which is the AAI Hackathon - a 24-hour challenge for researchers based on a specific policy challenge identified by two regions or municipalities.
