Work, the Workplace, and Aging Teleconferences

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) convened two teleconferences with a multidisciplinary group of thought leaders in work and aging research on December 21, 2017 and January 12, 2018. The goal of the teleconferences was to begin formulating a research agenda focused on work, the workplace, and aging. Prior to the first teleconference, BSR commissioned the participants to write short concept papers outlining recommendations for research priorities. The first teleconference elucidated the key points from the papers and identified common themes among the papers. The second call further expounded on key themes and promising methodological approaches. The full set of concept papers (PDF, 588K) and summary of the teleconferences (PDF, 204K) are available.
