The JRC-organised workshop "New policies for protection of ageing consumers" will take place on 1-3 October 2014 in Orasac, Croatia.
The application deadline has expired.
In order to deal with the challenges of ageing, particularly those due to cognitive ageing, policy-makers need a well-founded understanding of ageing and its determinants. The European Commission's in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) organises a workshop dedicated to new policies for protection of ageing consumers. Cognitive and physical ageing effects and their implications in an increasingly ageing population will be discussed through scientific presentations and mutual learning. The workshop, run by the JRC's experts in behavioural economics and nutrition, will focus on promoting interaction between participants, who can be practitioners or scientists.
The event is addressed to researchers and policy-makers, in particular within the JRC Enlargement and Integration Action. Applications are not strictly limited to those countries, therefore interested and highly motivated persons are invited to send their participation application. For further information, eligibility criteria and selection process, as well as venue, please refer to the workshop homepage.
