MEA, the Munich Center for the Economics of Aging, was founded to help evaluate, anticipate and accompany the micro- and macroeconomic aspects of demographic change. The aim of MEA is to develop and administer empirical models that predict these developments. These models base on German, European and global data. In addition to predicting future developments, these models shall be also used to analyze policy measures that affect these developments. From this, MEA shall be able to derive sound empirical advice for economic and social policy. The work of MEA is adressed towards decision-makers in politics and business and shall provide information of public interest.
MEA combines scientific research with scientific consulting. It is a member of various interdiciplinary and international research networks in order to contribute to the transfer of knowledge. Due to its international and in particular its European orientation, MEA has the resources to analyze demographic changes, their economic implications and their interactions with policy measures in comparative country studies. An important task of MEA is to understand more about these changes from different countries' experiences.
