CoE AgeCare studies the transformation of ageing and care of older people using new conceptual and interdisciplinary perspectives, conjoining the analysis of diversification of everyday life to that of ongoing profound societal and policy change. In particular, the CoE analyses the implications of current processes of transnationalisation and digitalisation for ageing and care. CoE AgeCare combines scholarship from social policy, sociology and gerontology, analysing older people’s care needs, agency and equality as well as the changing character of care work in the context of the ongoing societal trends of the ageing society. CoE AgeCare is conducted as a concerted effort of four different Research Groups (RGs) coming from the Universities of Jyväskylä, Tampere and Helsinki and in close collaboration with a broad network of leading international scholars. The CoE also functions as an international platform for researcher training of early career researchers.
