On May 14, the kick-off meeting of the Hans Böckler Foundation-funded doctoral college "New Challenges in Ageing Societies" took place at TU Dortmund University.


The aim of the college is to research new challenges that demographic change poses for individuals, families and society in times of crisis (pandemic, wars, climate). A total of nine doctoral scholarships will be awarded to investigate various topics.

We look forward to working together in the coming years and would like to extend a warm welcome to the scholarship holders!
