Health, Education and Retirement over the Prolonged Life Cycle

POP scientists are key speakers at this international conference at the Vienna Institute of Demography (VID)

The increasing healthy life expectancy raises questions about the consequences for individual behavior over the life cycle. Although a welcome development, the increase in life expectancy poses policy challenges for social security and the cohesion of society given that social groups benefit from a longer life to a varying extent. At this conference researchers from all social sciences present work on the individual and social causes and consequences of a prolonged life cycle at both the micro and macro levels.

The conference is coordinated by IIASA scientist Alexia Prskawetz and Michael Kuhn from the VID.

Keynote speakers include Prof. Andrew Jones (University of York, UK) and Prof. Uwe Sunde (Ludwig-Maximilians University, Munich, Germany; IZA; CESIfo; CEPR) and Wolfgang Lutz.

Registration is still open. For more information please visit the VID website
