The number of older people in the UK is set to rise significantly. What will this mean for the UK’s workforce? How will it impact younger generations? Are we doing enough to nurture younger talent? A fascinating project by the Government Office for Science is set to unveil the challenges and opportunities of an ageing society. This Foresight Future of an Ageing Population Project is chaired by the University of Oxford’s Professor Sarah Harper (Oxford Institute of Population Ageing).
