FUTURAGE: Can North America learn from Europe's road map for aging research? by Marilynn Larkin, MA

In October 2011, the European Commission launched the Road Map for European Ageing Research, the result of two years of collaborative efforts by the FUTURAGE project team. That team, under the leadership of Alan Walker, professor of social policy and social gerontology at the United Kingdom’s University of Sheffield, brought together 24 partners, 14 European countries, and more than 700 individual and organizational stakeholders. The resulting road map, according to FUTURAGE, “aims to tackle the grand challenge of Europe’s ageing population and provide the research agenda for ageing over the next 10 years.”
