The Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research will be a project partner in the new EU Interreg Alpine Space project Alpine Space Transnational Governance of Healthy and Active Ageing. Andreas Koch will lead the project team at the CEPR, which will also include Elisabeth Kapferer and one Phd student.
This three year project is dedicated to coordinate efforts and activities of public authorities, private companies and research institutions engaged in the health sectors for the elderly people. Existing and novel indexes to measure ‘active and healthy ageing’ shall be collected and developed in order to establish a transnational governance board which will communicate local and regional approaches in a comparative way. Project partners from Italy, Slovenia, France, Austria and Switzerland, together with observers from these countries and Germany, will take up this unique opportunity to do research in this important future challenge. The CEPR will be mostly involved in developing and assessing adequate indicators for ‘active and healthy ageing’.
