Abstract The approach to analysing population ageing and its impacts on the economy has evolved in recent years. There is increasing interest in the development and use of products and services related to gerontechnology as well as other social innovations that may be considered as central parts of the ‘‘silver economy.’’ However, the concept of silver economy is still being formed and requires detailed research. This article proposes a typology of models of the silver economy in the European Union (EU) at the national and regional levels. This typology was created by comparing the Active Ageing Index to the typology of varieties and cultures of capitalism and typology of the welfare states. Practical recommendations for institutions of the EU and directions for further research are discussed. Keywords: active ageing index, regional development, silver economy, varieties/cultures of capitalism, welfare state.

Homeshare is the exchange of housing for help. It recognises that two people have needs and something to give.
FOREWORDS The book you are looking at has, above all else, two characteristics that make it unique. First, it is a pioneering publication: never before has a monographic work on the evaluation of intergenerational programmes been published in Spain. Second, this book constitutes proof that the efforts made by IMSERSO (Spanish National Institute for Older Persons and Social Services) in the area of specialised training do not end, to put it colloquially, on the last day of class.
We are all enmeshed in intergenerational relationships. We are familiar with them. However, when we deal with these relationships in research, in teaching, in practical work or in politics we need generally intelligible key concepts. These are not meant to be definitive or dogmatic definitions, but explicit descriptions that acknowledge commonalities and differences between various disciplines and working fields.
