This conference is organized to celebrate the renewed collaboration between NIDI-KNAW and the University of Groningen/UMCG. The program will be an excellent opportunity to hear more on research at both institutions and discuss the relevance for science and society. Demographic change affects all of us: from ageing and the workforce, to care and families, regional development as well as (international) migration. Next to pitches and networking, we have a panel of eminent scholars discussing future population developments and their implications for research, policy and society.
