COST - European Cooperation in Science and Technology (External organisation)

Activity: Membership typesMembership of national or international committees and working groups


Europe faces one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century – an aging, age-diverse workforce. In response many projects, including several other COST Actions, addressed aspects of work and/or aging. However, so far no Action has yet tackled the essential psychological and managerial aspect of work and aging. LeverAge will thus bring together the largest network worldwide of work and aging scientists and practitioners focused on Work, Organizational, and Personnel psychology and Human Resource Management (WOP/HRM).

The Action will expand science and practice on work and organizational practices for an age-diverse workforce, successful aging at work for workers of different demographics, knowledge transfer between generations, the integration of age-diverse workers at work, aging and technology at work, and late-careers and retirement.

The LeverAge COST Action will build a pan-European and global network of scientists and practitioners focused on WOP/HRM that will advance, share, and promote knowledge and implementation of evidence-based practices to fully leverage the multi-age workforce and enhance the well-being, productivity and prosperity of individuals, organizations, and societies facing profound demographic and technological change.

The Action will establish five Working Groups focusing on key topics: Work and organizational practices for an age-diverse workforce; Successful aging at work; Integration of age-diverse workers and knowledge transfer; Aging and technology at work; Career development in later life and retirement.
