On the occasion of its 40th anniversary, the European Centre organizes a Symposium on “The Future of Welfare in a Global Europe", in Vienna on 15 September. Speakers from the worlds of academia and politics will present on the following four themes: Towards a Human Investment Society; Class, Generation, Gender, and Age Cleavages in Ageing Societies; Too Sick to Work – and too Ill to Live Independently? Disability, Frailty – and Happiness – in Stressful and Long-Life Societies; No “European Social Model” in Europe – or towards a Social Union? A “Ministerial Roundtable” will discuss the expert views presented, under the heading “Europe in the World, Austria in Europe”.

World Population Program Director Wolfgang Lutz will give a presentation on "Demographic Metabolism: Enabling Future Generations" in the first thematic session. Senior Scientist Alexia Fürnkranz-Prskawetz will discuss the reallocation of resources across age in a comparative European setting and introduce major findings of the National Transfer Accounts and the AGENTA Project.

The event is supported by the Hannes Androsch Stiftung and the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
