The research project “Second Career Labour Markets. Towards more employment opportunities for older workers” aims to stimulate debate on active ageing at work by identifying, analysing and comparing good practices among actors responsible at EU member-state level for creating job opportunities for older workers, including governments, social partners and companies.

The project will assess and debate the following key questions:
The project structure is made up of three interrelated work packages which will be put into action throughout the European Year for Active Ageing 2012:
1. The preparation of a comparative study, combining existing research with recent trends and innovative examples of best practice across Europe at the levels of government, social partners, industry and the individual.
2. The preparation of concrete Policy Recommendations by a Task Force that will outline the key determinants of successful role models and extract promising approaches for initiatives, while taking into account the input of interviewees.
3. A Launch Conference which took place in June 2012 in Brussels kicked off the project with a number of distinguished policymakers debating on key issues, and a Closing Conference in December, where the final comparative study and concrete Policy Recommendations to politicians, the public and the media will be presented.
