VIU Summer Institute on Ageing

ageing banner mail per sito senza data

 

The VIU Summer Institute on ageing is intended to deepen the understanding of the ageing process ranging from some basic notions of the medical and epidemiological literature, to an extensive treatment of economics (pensions and retirement, ageing in society and intergenerational relationships) and social sciences (role of family networks). Special attention is devoted to the use of large micro-data sets, such as SHARE (Survey of Health Ageing and Retirement in Europe) and sister surveys: the HRS, ELSA, TILDA, CHARLS. This edition of the VIU_Summer Institute will have a focus on Ageing in the Asian countries.

 

Learning outcomes are of two types:

- participants will gain more insight into the recent advances of the ageing process from a theoretical and practical point of views and will also be able to evaluate the impact of these advances (e.g. health care costs);

- participants will take part into a "hands on" session that will teach them how to use the data behind the research effort in this area.

 

Participants will also develop transversal competences because the approach is multidisciplinary and those who have a specific economic or sociological background will know more about medical advances in ageing research as well as learning the specific language in which MDs deal with these issues. High level policy makers or officials who may also take part in this programme will be able to learn how to connect issues between the health dimension of ageing and the economic dimension of ageing.
