LIAS invites applications for visiting junior fellows within the project ‘New Living arrangements for the boomer generation’ (May 2023).

Leuven Institute for Advanced Study – KU Leuven (Belgium)
Junior fellowships, May 2023 on ‘New Living arrangements for the boomer generation’

The fellowships are intended for advanced Ph.D. students, postdocs or junior faculty members (tenure track) of Una Europa Universities.

- Ageing in place versus moving in time
- Conflicts of governance in elderly care

- The contribution of technical aids
