Institute: Örebro University (Sweden)
Job specification: In NEWBREED, the term “successful ageing” refers to the various processes that work towards supporting meaningful and (inter-)active life across the lifespan. As such, successful ageing is an umbrella term that encompasses biological, psychological, social, societal, and technological processes, and importantly their interaction and intersections, as well as questions of ageism, age relations and intergenerational relations. The NEWBREED doctoral programme also encompasses: the differences of emphasis between, inter alia, successful, active, positive and model ageing; the critiques of such concepts and traditions; and their practical, policy and theoretical implications.
