The 2021 meeting will be held in Groningen, the Netherlands from October 27-29, 2021 (if the pandemic permits; otherwise online) and is conjointly organized by the Department of Human Resource Studies at Tilburg University (Dorien Kooij) and the Department of Organizational Psychology at the University of Groningen (Susanne Scheibe). The meeting theme is “A strengths-based approach on getting older: Unique contributions of older workers.” The meeting is preceded by a PhD workshop funded by the Oxford University Press and the University of Florida (Mo Wang). Note that this meeting is by invitation only.
