Science Advice for Policy by European Academies – SAPEA

As one of the five academic partners involved in the EU-funded project SAPEA, FEAM has acted as lead network in two recent projects: A scientific perspective on microplastics in nature and society, which evidence review report was published in January 2019, and Transforming the future of ageing, which report will follow soon. Additional information about the previous event can be found here.

 

Transforming the future of ageing

“Society must tackle the challenges presented by ageing in every generation – not left until old age”, this is the key conclusion of a major new Evidence Review Report entitled Transforming the Future of Ageing, that will be published by SAPEA and lead by FEAM. The report reviews the best evidence on what public policies might help EU countries to achieve inclusive, fair and sustainable health and social care in the future. The best way to improve life outcomes in old age is to anticipate and tackle them in youth and middle age.

Public events will be organized in the coming months to present the overview of the report:

  • Bucharest – 20 June 2019 – Library of the Romanian Academy (2 pm-5.30 pm) => REGISTRATION OPEN
  • Paris – 27 June 2019 – National Academy of Medicine (2 pm-6.00 pm) => REGISTRATION OPEN
