Six Workshop-Policy Events (WPEs) will be held in six different host regions, scheduled at six-month intervals between the opening and closing conferences. Five of these events will focus on different exclusion domains, with the sixth focusing on multidimensional old-age exclusion.
The workshop element, involving Action researchers, policy stakeholders and external expert speakers, will address research questions, innovative policy and practice, knowledge synthesis, and future directions, and will function as a means of cross-fertilisation across the five WGs. The policy element, aimed at generating policy impact for the Action, will involve a seminar for external researchers, policy makers and practitioners from the host region, and will focus on dissemination and innovative responses. Particular consideration will be given to the Action objectives in relation to the host nation region (e.g. Eastern Europe). For the full schedule of these events (with indicative dates) please see the table at the bottom of the page.

Third WPE focuses on Civic Exclusion
The 3rd ROSEnet European Policy Seminar will explore civic and symbolic aspects of exclusion. Focusing on the theme of Sustainable Ageing: Older people and European public policy beyond 2020, the Seminar will explore how existing policy systems and structures can reduce old-age social exclusion. Te Seminar will aim to advance a new dialogue between policy makers, civil society and researchers to inform new interventions for reducing exclusion in European ageing societies. Exploring state-of-the-art research and policy developments, the event will involve policy and research experts, from across European and international institutions, who are at the forefront of policy analysis, innovation and implementation.
