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.
