JPI More Years Better Lives publishes e-book on social exclusion during pandemic
The Joint Programming Initiative More Years, Better Lives (JPI MYBL) has published an e-book on 'Loneliness and social exclusion among older Europeans before and during the COVID-19 pandemic'. The publication is the main output of a knowledge sharing process launched in 2022. The process consisted of four connected online workshops which brought together groups of stakeholders, researchers, and policy representatives. The goal of the activity was to complement existing research and to provide a concrete perspective on the issues concerned. The contributions of the participating groups are presented in this e-book, along with additional articles on the topics of isolation and loneliness among older people.
In the Joint Programming Initiative More Years, Better Lives, 17 countries from within and outside of Europe are working on a programmed approach to enhance coordination and collaboration between national and international research programmes related to demographic change.
