Abstract:The ageing society is one of the grand challenges of our time, and European researchers are encouraged to cooperate to contribute to the knowledge development required to turn the challenges into sustainable solutions. There is a need for interdisciplinary, cross-national research to increase the understanding of the European diversity of ageing. Against this background, this opinion piece focuses on the implications for occupational therapy research. The occupational therapy perspective is strong and future oriented, with great potential to support active and healthy ageing. This article challenges occupational therapy research traditions and outlines avenues for future developments.
