Basierend auf einem umfassenden Literaturstudium, Interviewauswertungen mit österreichischen Experten und ausgewählten „Best Practice“-Beispielen sollen die scenario älterer Menschen in ausreichendem Gesundheitszustand (dh. ohne besonders schwere Behinderungen) umfassend beleuchtet und Wege aufgezeigt werden, am Berufsleben weiter teilhaben können.
