Giovanni Lamura holds a degree in Economics from the University of Ancona (Italy) and a PhD in “Life Course and Social Policy” from the University of Bremen (Germany).

Since 1995 he has been a researcher at the Department of Gerontological Research of the National Research Centre on Ageing (INRCA) in Ancona, and for two years also lecturer in “Social Aspects of Demographic Transition” at the University of Ancona.

From 2007 until now, Giovanni has been Director and Researcher at INRCA.

Besides this, Giovanni has PARTICIPATED in more than 20 international research projects (mainly coordinated as Italian representative), has written more than 40 publications and has participated in several conferences and committees as an expert in Socio-Economic Gerontology.
His RESEARCH INTERESTS are Family and long-term care of dependent elderly people; work-life balance; care work of immigrants; prevention of elder abuse and neglect; ICT-based initiatives to support informal carers; intergenerational solidarity; interdisciplinary research on ageing in general.
The National Institute for the Care of the Elderly (INRCA) is the only public scientific research and care institution (IRCCS) recognised in Italy for its specialisation in geriatrics and gerontology. It works to protect the health and well-being of older people, especially those living with frailty or who are not self-sufficient. The Institute pursues not only excellence in care services, provided in its hospital facilities, but also high quality scientific research into the mechanisms, and their causes, of longevity, frailty and multimorbidity in older people.

Our dear colleague Georgia Casanova also works as a researcher at this institute, and I don’t need to introduce Georgia because we have had the pleasure of working with her over the last few years and I am sure she will always be part of our team, in our hearts and in our research because we are interested in continuing to work together.
