INTERNATIONAL ANTONIO FELTRINELLI CONFERENCE
AGEING: from Basic Science to Policy Advice
Rome, 4 - 6 November 2019
Long-term changes in life expectancy and fertility have converted many countries into ageing societies. Failure to adapt to population ageing may constrain productivity, well-being, financial security, and equity, and may increase tensions between generations as they compete for limited resources. The problems involved and strategies to address these concerns, regarding current as well as future elders, require a multidisciplinary approach. The first International Feltrinelli Conference, supported by the Lincei Academy’s Fondo «Antonio Feltrinelli» and by SAPEA (Science Advice for Policy of the European Academies), is dedicated to reviewing and discussing the multifaceted aspects of the ageing process, from basic science to policy advice.
