Network on Ageing


Our project also represented on the Austrian platform “Network on Ageing”. Further information is available at: http://www.netzwerk-altern.at/node/977

Information about the platform:

At the initiative of the BMWFW, the Austrian Platform for Interdisciplinary Ageing Issues / ÖPIA has assumed the role of the national „Network on Ageing – Ageing and Demographic Change as Challenge and Chance” in Austria since mid-2016. Together with all the partner organisations of this network, ÖPIA will therefore in future make even greater efforts than before to achieve systematic networking and improved interdisciplinary synergies in ageing research and on ageing issues in Austria and, for example

  • increasingly initiate formats of networking, knowledge transfer and result-oriented cooperation
  • collect the partners’ research activities and make them accessible online via a database
  • be available to interested organisations, decision-makers and experts as an independent national contact and service point on the subject (e.g. questions on calls for proposals, cooperation possibilities, available data, etc.)
