Creating second career labour markets: Towards more employment opportunities for older workers
5 December 2012, Brussels, Belgium
Venue: Bertelsmann Stiftung, Résidence Palace, Rue de la Loi 155, Brussels
Bertelsmann Stiftung and the European Policy Centre have cooperated on the project Second career labour markets during the European Year of Active Ageing 2012. This is the final conference that marks the end of the project.
The project on 'Second career labour markets' aimed to stimulate debate on 'active ageing at work' by identifying, analysing and comparing good practices among actors responsible at EU member-state level for creating job opportunities for older workers, including governments, social partners and companies. To provide guidance for other older workers, this research was complemented by a series of showcase interviews with elderly people who have successfully established 'second careers' - as employees or as self-employed - in the sense that they enjoy working at their age.
A conference programme is available.
Director Juan Menéndez-Valdés will present Eurofound's recently published report on Income from work after retirement in the EU.
