[en] What does it mean to get older and eventually become an older citizen when residing in Europe? How do individuals deal with the challenges that result from health-related issues, novel cognitive demands, developmental tasks, and societal changes? How can societies offer the context for a good life to individuals, who have lived beyond their sixth decade of life, and may still have more than four decades to go? Research on aging does not point to just one other field of psychological science that one may consider as topical. In all, the five contributions to this special issue provide a rich and instructive compilation of articles that point to the potentials of aging research in basic and applied psychology. The diversity of these articles may also give an idea of the contributions and insights that can be gained from geropsychological work in psychology. This special issue has been a joint initiative of a longstanding network on geropsychology that has been established on the premises of EFPA.
