Mariska van der Horst receives grant to research ageing at work

14 September 2021
Mariska van der Horst of the Department of Sociology has received a UKRI (UK Research and Innovation)-grant as a co-applicant within a consortium of colleagues in the UK (Lead applicant: Prof. Wendy Loretto, University of Edinburgh): "Beyond the 10 000 steps: Managing less visible aspects of healthy ageing at work".

UKRI has established an Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) to address major societal challenges facing UK businesses. One of the challenges is an ageing society. Within this challenge, the consortium has submitted and been awarded a research grant to look at the health and well-being of older workers and the self-employed.

 A special focus will be on more hidden components of health at work (such as menopause and cognitive decline). The ambitious interdisciplinary study will consist of both quantitative and qualitative research, have a specific focus on developing possible interventions, and pay attention to variation in the group of 'older workers'. The goal of the project is to encourage business investment in healthy ageing at work, enable employers to retain knowledge and talent from older workers, and support people in their work.
