Active participation

The IAF is building a network to include experiences and expertise of people 60+ in current research. If you are interested in joining this network, please sign up here.

The IAF applies a participatory research method, i.e., seniors are actively involved in the research in order to obtain valid results. Through participative research, not only IAF scholars but also non-professionals get actively involved in the different phases of the research process. Depending on the objective of the research, other actors besides researchers and seniors can also be involved in the participative process (e.g., persons from industry, health care, etc.).
