CEIBS has established a research fund on “Aged to Perfection: Benefits from An Inactive Population” in Honour of Dr. Gerard Van Schaik, Co-Chairman of CEIBS Board of Directors. The fund invites academics and scholars to submit research proposals for projects that offer multi-disciplinary solutions to the negative impact that technological and societal changes have brought to the job market – specifically as it relates to the senior members of society.
We expect to approve four projects over a 12-month period and give grants of US$10,000 per project. The topics of particular interest include:
1) Detailed overview of the impact that technology and societal changes are having on the global labour market, specifically the creation of an “inactive” segment of the population.
2) Analysis of the wasted human resources and financial implications as a result of factors including early retirement and social exclusion of large swathes of the population.
3) Suggestions on how to effectively engage members of this inactive population, and harness their resources for the benefit of the entire society.
The recipients of the grants are required to submit one research paper (of any length) and one non-technical white paper (4-5 pages single-spaced) upon completion of the project, and to present the research results in a workshop organized by CEIBS with the presence of Dr. Gerard Van Schaik.
Thank you for your attention.
