Professors Emeriti Network

Professors Emeriti Network

Professors Emeriti Network. We walk what we talk.

Professors Emeriti Network was created on October 5, 2020. Organizational networks play a crucial role in the digital era by supporting collaboration, knowledge sharing, innovation, employee engagement, data management, customer engagement, and cybersecurity. They are instrumental in navigating the complexities and challenges of the digital landscape and leveraging the benefits of technology for organizational success. While the association-based organizational form might be suitable for certain situations, an organizational network’s advantages in flexibility, collaboration, resource optimization, and adaptability make it a preferred choice for many modern businesses seeking to thrive in a dynamic and competitive landscape. The ability to mobilize resources, expertise, and information across a broader network of interconnected entities enhances an organization’s ability to take swift and effective actions.

Participants in the network include professors emeriti in Slovenia, and the links to the professor emeriti in the following  countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Norway, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, and the United States of America. The network is open and is expected to expand.

The fields of activities of professors emeriti in the network depend on their scientific field and requirements as they find them in work. They will collaborate by using Internet according to problems observed and will focus on actions needed and desired. The network is highly interdisciplinary.

The network’s secretary is Jože Gričar, Professor Emeritus, University of Maribor, Joze.Gricar@UM.si.

 

Records of the meeting are published on Emeriti Network YouTube.

Accelerated actions are needed in an aging society and digitization

The combination of an aging society and digitization is creating new challenges and opportunities for individuals, businesses, and governments around the world. Accelerated actions are needed to address these challenges and take advantage of the opportunities.

Firstly, an aging society means that there is a growing population of older adults who may require additional healthcare services, social support, and financial resources. Digitization can help address some of these challenges by providing new ways for older adults to access healthcare services, connect with friends and family, and manage their finances. However, there are still many older adults who may not have the necessary digital skills or access to technology to benefit from these innovations.

Secondly, digitization is also transforming the way we work and do business. Automation and artificial intelligence are changing the nature of work and creating new opportunities for innovation and growth. However, this also means that workers need to acquire new skills and adapt to new ways of working. Older workers, in particular, may need additional support and training to keep up with these changes.

Accelerated actions are needed to ensure that older adults are not left behind in the digital age and that the workforce is prepared for the changing demands of the economy. This includes investing in digital infrastructure, providing digital skills training and support for older adults, and developing policies that support the needs of an aging population. Governments, businesses, and individuals all have a role to play in this process, and the sooner we start taking action, the better prepared we will be for the future.

Invitation to publishing a link to an action

The network members are invited to propose a link to a website of a recent action, or an action in progress in which the professors emeriti are involved. The links will be published at Professors Emeriti Network. Of particular interest are the links to the websites on the actions which are open to the cross-border eCollaboration.

Invitation to organizing the online network’s meeting

The network’s members are kindly invited to organize one of the network’s online meetings in 2024. Based on the experience in 2021, 2022 and 2023, the meeting is planned in February, April, June, September, and November. The timing is usually on Wednesday from 17:00 to 19:00 Central European Time – CET.

The network’s meeting is focused on a chosen topic proposed by the meeting’s organizer. Welcome are the topics which are problem based and action focused. The meeting may initiate a formation of a working group in which some of the network members are sharing interest and may want to develop an action plan, or write a paper, or a position paper.

The organizer of the meeting invites 3-4 discussants who contribute to the topic. The organizer of the meeting and the discussants submit the text (1-2 pages) of their contribution before the meeting. The text is published as an attachment next to the author’s name on the network’s website. In the text, provision of the links to the related websites is welcome. The meeting’s organizer provides the technology and submits the link to the meeting.

After the meeting, the organizer submits a record of the meeting to be published along with the Participants List.

Your proposals are very much welcome.

Silver Economy

The term “silver economy” refers to the economic opportunities and challenges associated with an aging population. It includes the industries, products, and services that cater to the needs and wants of older adults.

Action is needed in the silver economy because of several reasons:

Demographic shift: There is a significant demographic shift occurring worldwide, with a growing proportion of the population aging. According to the World Health Organization, the global population of people over 60 years old is expected to reach 2 billion by 2050, up from 900 million in 2015. This demographic shift is creating new demands for products and services that cater to the needs and wants of older adults.

Economic opportunities: The silver economy represents a significant economic opportunity for businesses and entrepreneurs who can meet the needs and wants of older adults. This includes everything from healthcare services to leisure activities, technology, and housing.

Social benefits: A thriving silver economy can also bring social benefits, including improved health outcomes, increased social connectivity, and reduced isolation for older adults. It can also create employment opportunities and help support local economies.

Challenges: However, there are also significant challenges associated with the silver economy, including funding healthcare and social services, developing appropriate housing options, and addressing ageism and age-related stereotypes.

Action is needed in the silver economy to address the challenges and opportunities associated with an aging population, to support the social and economic well-being of older adults, and to create a more inclusive society for people of all ages.

Active Aging: Opportunities for Joint Research and Actions Generation in 2023

International joint actions can play an important role in promoting active aging and improving the health and wellbeing of older adults around the world.

Collaborative research: International collaboration can help to identify best practices, interventions, and policies that promote active aging. Researchers from different countries can collaborate to develop and implement studies that examine the impact of various interventions on older adults’ health and wellbeing.

Information sharing: International organizations, associations and networks can facilitate the sharing of information and resources on active aging. This can include best practices, research findings, and policy recommendations.

Training and education: International partnerships can help to develop training programs that promote active aging. These programs can provide older adults with the skills and knowledge they need to stay healthy and engaged in their communities.

Policy coordination: International organizations can work with governments to develop policies that support active aging. This can include policies that promote access to healthcare, housing, and social services.

Awareness campaigns: International organizations can collaborate on awareness campaigns to promote active aging. These campaigns can raise awareness about the benefits of staying active and engaged as we age, and can help to reduce stigma and discrimination against older adults.

Retired Professors Entitlements for Access to University IT: Universities Policy. Report By Jože Gričar, March 2022, Joze.Gricar@UM.si.

We have been confronted with questions about the possibilities of retired professors being granted access to continued use of the university’s information technology (IT). We studied the problem only from the point of view of retired professors who do not have the title emerita/emeritus. The professors emeriti do not have this problem. In almost all universities, among the bonuses that belong to professors emeriti, they are entitled to use IT in an unchanged way after retirement.

During the Covid pandemic1, it became clear in a short period of time how important it is to have ample access to IT for everyday life, both at home and at work. The lack of adequate access to IT services for the retired population will likely grow in the coming years since the IT is increasingly complex. For that reason, there is a need to increase access to IT training and support programs for using IT will be required. If that access is not increased, the gap between the possibilities of those who know how to use IT and those who do not will widen.

In December 2021, we asked the members of the Professors Emeriti Network to assist in collecting the answers to the following questions considering the policy of her/his university:

May I continue to use my university email account after I retire?
May I continue to access software through the university after I retire?
May I continue to utilize IT support for my computer after I retire?

In January 2022, we searched university websites to find links to where the universities publish IT accessibility policy for retired professors. The relevant university location is very often “IT Services Support, Human Resource Department” ( pdf Retired professors entitlements for access to university IT March 2022). Several universities confirmed that the link found is the correct on, some proposed more appropriate link. Colleagues from different universities were also helpful in providing data. To all we are expressing our appreciation of their assistance.

Considering data collected, a paper of a group of authors will be presented to the 2nd Congress of European Association of Professors Emeriti: “The Capital of Knowledge” (Naples, April 28-30, 2022) and published afterwards.

Professors Emeriti Ethical and Legal Aspect Group

In line with the consensus of Professors Emeriti Network, with the objectives of the functioning and action of the European Association of Professors Emeriti, in line with the statements of the European Commission in the GREEN PAPER ON AGEING Fostering solidarity and responsibility between generations (Brussels, 27.1.2021 COM, 50 final), Professors Emeriti Network nominates the Expert Working Group on: Ethical and Legal Aspect from Professors Emeriti and Retired Researchers  Contribution in Public Goodness on 8th of November 2021.

pdf Professors Emeriti Ethical and Legal Aspect Group November 8 2021

On September 19, 2022, the document Developing the Silver Economy and Related Government Resources for Seniors. A Position Paper was published by the Global Network of Associations & Networks: Retirees Developing Silver Economy. The Position Paper was developed gradually basing on discussions at three Zoom meetings of network members during 2022 (February 16, April 6, June 1). The meeting programs and the participants lists are published.

On April 21, 2021, the Professors Emeriti Network published the Minister of Seniors Appointment. Position Paper. The representatives of Active Aging Networks are invited to share the idea with the network members on having the minister of seniors in all countries. In the Position Paper, it is also proposed to establish a Seniors Council of the Government.

Celebrating the International Day of Older Persons 2023
Commemorative Events

The International Day of Older Persons, which falls on October 1st every year, is an opportunity to recognize the contributions and achievements of older persons and to promote their rights and well-being. For professors emeriti, this day can also provide an opportunity to continue their academic work and contribute to society in various ways:

Mentorship: Professors emeriti can mentor and advise younger generations of students and researchers in their respective fields. This can be done through formal mentoring programs or by simply being available for consultation and advice.

Research: Professors emeriti can continue to conduct research in their fields of expertise and publish their findings. They can also collaborate with other researchers and academics to advance knowledge in their respective fields.

Teaching: Professors emeriti can teach courses, workshops, and seminars on topics related to their fields of expertise. This can be done at universities, community colleges, and other educational institutions.

Community outreach: Professors emeriti can use their knowledge and expertise to serve their communities. This can be done through volunteering, providing educational talks, or consulting with local businesses and organizations.

Advocacy: Professors emeriti can use their voices to advocate for the rights and well-being of older persons. This can be done through public speaking, writing articles, or engaging with policymakers.

The scientific base of circular economy starts from observing humans and their mechanisms assuming that also the economic systems have to function as organisms where the feeding substances are elaborated, consumed and recycled both biologically and technically so giving origin to what is called closed cycle. Circular economy so must be assumed as a reference for the thinking of alternative model and as answer to the old time. This should guide us toward products belonging to sustainable design and to repairable goods (right to repair, a new one!) so going to ethically behave in favor of long-life objects and to ethically influence the market. Ethics also plays a role in sharing of goods so that their exploitation is increased.

Artificial Intelligence Tools: A Wealth of Intelligence and Nothing Artificial.
Seniors 55+ Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) Tools: Lessons Learned and Best Practices Exchange

You Tube: Zoom Meeting on Wednesday, February 14, 2024, 17:00

Outline

The interested individuals are cordially invited to help form the Task Group Seniors 55+ Using AI Tools to Support Active Aging as a Component of the Silver Economy in their respective country, or region.

AI tools are important to professors emeriti and retired professors in general since they offer the means to stay connected, engaged, and productive in their post-academic lives. Whether through research assistance, writing support, or community engagement, AI can play a valuable role in enhancing the retired professor’s overall experience. Retired university professors can benefit from using AI tools in various ways, enhancing both their personal and professional lives. Using AI tools is crucial for active aging and the development of the Silver Economy for all Seniors 55+. Retired academics can help a lot in that regard considering their experience and professional connections.

As a continuation of the zoom meeting on September 13, 2023, we are preparing the Task Group Zoom meeting: Seniors 55+ Using AI Tools to Support Active Aging as Component of Silver Economy. The topic is Lessons Learned and Best Practices Exchange. The groups’ members will be encouraging the eSeniors 55+ in their respective environment to start using AI tools and report on the experiences gained.

Data on links to relevant eArticles and eReports are collected and published at Global Network of Associations & Networks: Retirees Developing Silver Economy (http://eregion.eu/global-network-associations-networks-retired-persons-developing-silver-economy/).

Presenters will be looking for the answers to the following questions:

What did I learn from using the AI tool?

What will I do to introduce eSeniors to the benefits of using artificial intelligence tools in the next three months?

How can we eCollaborate to share experiences?

Zoom Meeting on September 13, 2023: Artificial Intelligence (AI) Applied to Seniors 55+ in the Silver Economy.

Background of the meeting

Applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) to seniors aged 55 and above in the silver economy can lead to various advantages and improvements tailored to their unique needs and challenges. The silver economy refers to the economic activities and opportunities arising from the growing older population.

AI can enable personalized and proactive healthcare solutions, including early detection of health issues, remote monitoring of chronic conditions, and optimized treatment plans. This can result in better health outcomes, reduced hospitalization, and improved overall well-being for seniors.
AI-powered smart home technologies can support aging in place, allowing seniors to live independently and comfortably in their own homes. These technologies can assist with daily tasks, provide safety and security features, and offer virtual companionship.
AI applications, such as brain-training programs and memory assistance tools, can help seniors maintain cognitive function and potentially delay the onset of age-related cognitive decline.
AI-driven chatbots and virtual companions can provide companionship, engage in conversation, and reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness, which are common issues among the elderly population.
AI can assist seniors with financial planning, budgeting, and fraud detection, ensuring their financial security and preventing potential financial exploitation.
AI can personalize entertainment options for seniors, curating content based on their preferences and interests, enhancing their leisure experience.
AI can open up new job prospects and opportunities for seniors, allowing them to participate in the workforce or start new ventures during their later years.
AI-driven autonomous vehicles and mobility solutions can make transportation more accessible and safe for seniors, improving their mobility and independence.
AI-powered customer service bots can provide efficient and helpful assistance to seniors, making interactions with businesses and services more convenient.
AI can contribute to the development of age-friendly cities ans communities, where smart infrastructure and services cater to the needs of older adults, promoting a higher quality of life.
By investing in AI and technology solutions for seniors, the silver economy can stimulate innovation and create new business opportunities, leading to economic growth and development.

It is essential to ensure that AI applications in the silver economy are designed with a focus on inclusivity, accessibility, and user-friendly interfaces to ensure that all seniors can benefit from these technologies. Moreover, addressing privacy and data security concerns is critical to building trust and encouraging wider adoption of AI solutions among seniors.

The purpose of the meeting

Retired academics can contribute to the development of the silver economy in the digitized society in several ways:

Knowledge Sharing: Retired academics possess valuable expertise and experience in various fields. They can contribute by sharing their knowledge through mentoring programs, online courses, or workshops targeted at seniors. This helps older individuals develop new skills and stay engaged in the digital economy.

Research and Consulting: Retired academics can engage in research projects focused on understanding the needs and challenges of seniors in the digitized society. Their expertise can provide insights into designing user-friendly technologies, developing age-friendly products and services, and creating inclusive digital platforms. They can also offer consulting services to businesses and organizations seeking guidance on serving the seniors.

Content Creation: Retired academics can contribute to the silver economy by creating educational content tailored to seniors. This can include writing articles, books, or blogs on topics such as digital literacy, health and wellness, financial planning, and personal development. They can leverage digital platforms to disseminate their content and reach a wider audience.

Community Engagement: Retired academics can actively participate in local communities, senior centers, or retirement communities to promote digital literacy and provide guidance on technology use. They can organize workshops, seminars, or discussion groups to address the specific concerns and challenges faced by seniors in the digitized society.

Advocacy and Policy Development: Retired academics can use their knowledge and expertise to advocate for policies and regulations that support the inclusion and empowerment of seniors in the digital economy. They can collaborate with policymakers, industry stakeholders, and advocacy groups to raise awareness about the needs of older individuals and ensure their interests are considered in the development of digital technologies and services.

Dear Signatory, Developing the Silver Economy and Related Government Resources for Seniors. A Position Paper
Dear Member, Professors Emeriti Network

On Wednesday, the 16th November, 2022, we will have our next Zoom meeting. We will start from the conclusion of the last meeting I chaired on September 19, and of the Slovenian event on 30th September.

We agreed about the birth and growth of a Network among all the Associations of the Third Age with specific attention to the cultured active components. We also agreed about the relevance of such a network for the development of Silver Economy, to be considered a great opportunity for improving economic situation.

Precious instruments for these two goals are the Institution of a Minister of Seniors (With great pleasure I read that on the birth of the New Italian Government a Minister of Old Age is considered as possible innovation) and of the Council of Old Persons, both instruments being able to give political essence to our proposals. My opinion is that we must go on in this direction collecting adhesions in order to reach a critical dimension from which to start with a first concrete step that should be the formal creation of the Network.

Key words:
Network, Silver Economy (I suggest capital letter as initials), Minister, Third Age, Old Persons, Services for Old, Ageing of Population, Emeriti, Retired, Active Researcher

Best greetings and thanks for the attention.
Luigi Campanella

Knowledge market inclusion of retired researchers and professor emeriti in Slovenia depends on individual engagement and possibilities. Often their silent presence is required as the operative staff of research institution and universities are not interested in their cooperation, or the legal aspect of their cooperation is limited. But their engagement in civil society is desired, their products are appreciated – what can be done on more transparency of their contribution to public goodness? The comparative discussion among countries and universities on legal, informal and ethical aspects of professor emeriti research and education activities could give a response.
