SHARE conference and workshop, Brussels, Belgium
A conference and workshop on the release of key findings from SHARE ('The Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe') will be held in Brussels, Belgium, on 28 November.
SHARE has begun building a multidisciplinary, cross-national and longitudinal database on health, socio-economic status and social and family networks of more than 30,000 individuals aged 50 and over in selected European countries from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean. SHARE has already attracted over 1,000 scientific users who have produced a wealth of findings based on the project's baseline data collected in 2004-05. Now, some initial results from the second wave of SHARE data will be presented.
SHARE provides the infrastructure needed to improve our understanding of individual and societal ageing. It informs policy makers in Europe how the ageing process can be turned into an opportunity by appropriate pension, health care and labour market policies.For further information, please visit:
