All over Europe, there is increased focus on longer working lives due to increased life expectancy and decreased birth rates, which put strains on welfare funding across nations. Although the overall population on average is healthier, better educated and has longer careers than before, there is limited knowledge on the health consequences of prolonged working careers.

Employer strategies for managing sick leaves and employee health over the decades.
Analysis of efforts to reduce absence due to illness and disability pensions.
The main aim of the proposed project is to examine whether today's senior-policy initiatives reach the intended target groups and have the desired effect on retirement behaviour.
The aim of the project is to explore existing mobility patterns (shift of jobs/careers) among older workers (50+) and analyse preconditions for successful transitions (mobility).
In this project, we intend to deepen our understanding of the relationships between lifelong learning and the employability of older adults.
Interactions between public and labour market based pensions in Norway: pension outcomes and policy processes.
The Research Council of Norway participates together with the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs in the Joint Program Initiatives (JPI) within the area "More Years, Better Lives".
Although increased education proves to have a positive employment effect, we know that few older employees in Norway participate in further education. It is therefore important to gain more knowledge about what it takes for more adults to participate. The pilot project will map the possibilities for implementing a main project that looks at the competence provisions in the collective agreements and their significance for seniors' participation in lifelong learning.
