The British Society for Population Studies (BSPS) is a non-profitable society of persons with a scientific interest in the study of human populations. It's aim is the furthering the scientific study of biological, economic, historical, medical, social and other disciplines connected with human populations. The 2019 BSPS Annual Conference will be held at University Hall, Cardiff University, 9-11 September. The plenary theme of the conference will be "An ageing population: opportunities and challenges".

Guillaume Marois will discuss projecting health trajectories in Europe using microsimulation during his presentation at the conference. Marois is one of the IIASA partners in the Ageing Trajectories of Health: Longitudinal Opportunities and Synergies (ATHLOS) project, that aims to achieve a better understanding of ageing by identifying patterns of healthy ageing pathways or trajectories and their determinants, the critical points in time when changes in trajectories are produced, and to propose timely clinical and public health interventions.

In a second presentation, Marois will discuss how reducing differentials in education and labour force participation could lessen workforce decline in EU28. This work was recently published as part of the Demographic Research Special Collection on “Drivers and the potentialimpact of future migration in the European Union,” a project of the Centre of Expertise on Population and Migration, a research partnership between IIASA's World Population Program and the European Commission's Joint Research Centre.
