The Bertelsmann Stiftung and the European Policy Centre (EPC) join forces for common project on "Second Career Labour Markets"
As Europe's population is ageing and its workforce continuously shrinking, innovative solutions have to be found in order to secure Europe's growth and innovation levels for the future. At the same time, people are living longer and are healthier and fitter, which allows them to participate in society and the labor market far beyond their 60s. Nevertheless, the path towards more labor market integration is still a rocky one for many older workers across Europe. To address these issues the Bertelsmann Stiftung and the European Policy Centre have jointly launched a project on how to improve the working opportunities for older workers in 2012, the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations.
 
The key results of this project have most recently been published in the report "Second Career Labour Markets. Assessing Challenges - Advancing Policies". The authors of the study  identify a series of disincentives and barriers that continue to prevent better labor market integration for an ageing workforce. In order to overcome these obstacles the report presents a series of concrete policy measures addressed at European stakeholders such as governments, social partners, companies as well as individuals.
