We have established a Scientific Advisory Board, which contributes to MATURE with professional expertise and perspectives on the themes of the project.
The members, who are recognized international researchers in aging and each represent different perspectives, meet annually. The Advisory Board has a consultative role, and the members contribute by providing sparring to the project’s researchers and the process of developing scenarios, and in addition, they have the opportunity to contribute to the project work.
The Scientific Advisory Board consists of the following members:
Marjolein Broese Van Groenou (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam – VU, Netherlands)
“Many older adults do not suffer from health problems, but run a high risk for loneliness due to widowhood or intensive spousal caregiving.”
Moon Choi (Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology – KAIST, South Korea)
“One of the biggest questions is about the meaning of life.”
Simon Biggs (The University of Melbourne, Australia)
“With population change and with threats to traditional forms of work, those assumptions about how one becomes a valuable citizen are going to have to change.”
Britt Östlund (Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan – KTH, Sweden)
“To be old today is more than to be a care receiver – it is also to be consumer and a citizen, and we need to include all these aspects when thinking of technology.”
Desmond O’Neill (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland)
“Ageing is the richest time of life.”
