„Demo­graph­ic change” is a con­cept that is famil­iar to every­one and its con­se­quences are becom­ing more and more vis­i­ble late­ly.

For that rea­son, ACADEMIA SUPERIOR assigned the task to write a study on „Fun­da­men­tals and approach­es to a gen­er­a­tion pol­i­cy in Upper Aus­tria” to Prof. Dr. Hel­mut Kramer, mem­ber of our Advi­so­ry Board, Aus­tri­an econ­o­mist and Chair­man of the Aus­tri­an Plat­form on Age­ing.

The most impor­tant 10 the­ses of the study were pre­sent­ed to an audi­ence of stake­hold­ers, com­ment­ed by fel­low Board mem­ber Univ.-Prof. Dr. Friedrich Schnei­der and com­ple­ment­ed by best-prac­tice exam­ples of how demo­graph­ic change and gen­er­a­tion man­age­ment are already dealt with in Upper Aus­tri­an com­mu­ni­ties and else­where.

The talks were fol­lowed by ques­tions from the audi­ence and a dis­cus­sion with the speak­ers and ACADEMIA SUPE­RI­OR-Pres­i­dent Dr. Michael Strugl and host at Back­aldrin Forum Peter Augen­do­pler.
