LIFECON Life course and economic implications of demographic change


What is LIFECON about?

Population ageing challenges the resiliency of the welfare state. In the LIFECON project, we aim to find solutions for this. We focus on different phases of the life course, including family formation, working life, and health and care at the end of life. We also study the implications of demographic change for the macroeconomy and public finances.

The long-term sustainability of the welfare state requires timely fiscal policy decisions that adapt to population changes. The burden should not be passed on to future generations.
