Core Group Meeting: Milan, Italy – May 24-26, 2016


The Meeting took place at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Milan. The meeting included the exchange and an upgrade about administrative issues as well as an exchange about ongoing activities, training school and short term scientific mission on the first day. The four working groups met on the second day of the meeting and presented their findings and strategies in a plenary afternoon session. Here, it became evident that all groups made a significant progress: concrete steps to reach the specific goals of each group have in part been realized and future activities for the next six months were arranged. The highlight of the third day was the 1. International Conference on Intergenerational Family Solidarity Across Europe. The conference started with keynote of Professor Federico Perali who gave an excellent comparative overview of the economic factors and dynamics underlying family solidarity in Europe. This was followed by four symposia reflecting on different issues of INTERFASOL (e.g., support exchanges between generations, transmission of values in families, migration and solidarity) as well as a poster session that presented projects of the STSM candidates (see programme).

The follow up meeting will take place in Dublin, 15-16 November 2016.
