L’objectif de ce colloque est de présenter les travaux réalisés par l’Institut des politiques publiques (IPP) avec l’appui scientifique de la Fondation Médéric Alzheimer (FMA) dans le cadre de la Chaire Économie de la dépendance des personnes âgées et de rassembler un panel d’experts, susceptibles de réagir à ces travaux.

Challenges and objectives of the Chair

The French live longer and longer in good health so far, but a stabilization of old-age loss of autonomy is usually expected in the most recent projections. This project aims to analyze prospectively the evolution of old-age dependency prevalence and to study all the impacts associated with long-term care.

More generally, the three main objectives of the Chair are to:

  • Stimulate the research in the field of the Chair, with publications in peer-reviewed journals.
  • Produce analyzes and studies to inform partners’ interventions with public decision-makers.
  • Develop a dynamic micro-simulation module on the evolution of the dependent population, its management and its accompaniment.
  • Set up a European-level comparison of the care of dependence and microsimulation models. This comparison is possible thanks to an associated European project (ANR Longlives).

Governance of the Chair

The Chair is created at PSE-Ecole d’Economie de Paris within the framework of the Institut des politiques publiques (IPP), which aims to promote the quantitative analysis and evaluation of public policies. The Chair is a privileged space for exchanges between the experts of the Fondation Médéric Alzheimer and those of PSE.

The Chair is based on different governance bodies

  • A Steering Committee which defines the strategic orientations of the work of the Chair, the necessary means and validates the work plan that will follow.
  • An operational monitoring team composed of experts from the Foundation and PSE.

The management of this Chair “Dépendance” is entrusted to Pierre-Yves Geoffard. Antoine Bozio, implement the decisions of the Steering Committee and ensure compliance with the operational guidelines for the creation of a tool, specific to the Chair, for dynamic micro-simulation and coupled with that of the IPP.
