The MOPACT Final Conference will present the findings of the MOPACT project and propose the policies to make ageing a social and economic asset for Europe.
Since the project started in March 2013, MOPACTâ€™s consortium of 32 partners has drawn on high quality science to develop innovative approaches that can assist public authorities, at all levels in Europe.
The project started from the conviction that Europe requires a new paradigm of ageing to successfully respond to the challenges of demographic change. During this one-day conference MOPACT will present its proposals for rethinking ageing across the five main dimensions of economic and social impact:
Social support, long-term care and quality of life in an ageing society
Built and technological environment and the silver economy
Health and well-being, biological ageing and the boundaries of frailty
Chaired by Frank Vandenbroucke, former Belgian Minister of Social Policy, the opening speech will be delivered by Ruth Paserman, Deputy Head of Cabinet, DG Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility. There will also be speeches by Sirpa Pietikainen â€“ MEP Finland, EPP, ECON FEMM Committee; Former Minister of the Environment and Heinz Becker, EPP, LIBE and EMPL Committees.
