The AAI-II project will undertake an updating of the Active Ageing Index (AAI)*, which was developed during European Year 2012 at European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research, Vienna. It will expand the coverage of the AAI to Croatia and also for a number of UNECE Member States that are not Member States of the EU. It will not only update AAI for a more recent time but also for previous years, and undertake contextual social policy analysis as well. The project team will also assist UNECE/EC in the organisation of a Researchers’ Seminar on ‘Determinants of the AAI results and the life course perspective’, during 2015.

For those who are interested, please note that the closing date is:
Friday 31 January 2014.
