WP5: Knowledge translation


WP Leader: UCL; Prof Martin Bobak.

This WP involves activities that use the research outcomes obtained from the previous WPs to conduct a series of applications to effectively improve the health of European citizens, providing more effective health services and strengthening the health care system. The microsimulation model developed in WP2 will be used to:

  • Generate the economic and social consequences of policy value decisions on how best to allocate resources for interventions to modify ageing trajectories across the population (this exercise will enable policy-makers to be aware of the consequences of inevitable policy trade-offs).
  • Explore alternative healthy ageing scenarios in Europe and internationally, and to discuss their implications for policy.
  • Identify population-level or clinical interventions that can directly alter ageing trajectories towards those that optimise healthy ageing.
