VIU Summer Institute on Ageing
Gender Issues in an Ageing Society
June 4-9, 2018
Deadline to apply: April 15, 2018
The VIU Summer Institute on Ageing offers a ‘state-of-the-art’ program which will provide the students with a thorough understanding of the ageing process, ranging from recent advances of the medical and epidemiological literature, to an extensive treatment of the economic dimension (pensions and long term care) and of the sociological dimensions (intergenerational transfers, role of family networks). Special attention will be given to the use of large micro-data sets, such as SHARE (Survey of Health Ageing and Retirement in Europe) and sister surveys.
This edition of the Summer Institute will have a focus on “Ageing and Gender”. The last three days will be organized in collaboration with the COST action IS1409, focusing on “Gender implications of extending working lives”, with common sessions on June 7-8 and an optional COST session on June 9.
Who is it for?
Graduate and PhD students in social sciences (economics, sociology, demography, political science), to MDs particularly geriatrics, students in epidemiology, public health. Researchers involved in the COST network are particularly welcome. Policy makers and high-level officials in public and private institutions will be admitted if their background is adequate.
