Summary: Project fully met all the foreset scientifical and other
goals as: 1) gerontogogy was sistemized as a distinctive scienfitifal
discipline and was included in the regular study of pedagogy at the
Faculty of Philosophy, University of Zagreb, 2) programmes for education
of elderly people were made, 3) programmes were evaluated empirically at
the Open University during three years, 4) cooperation with Sweden was
established in initiative for creation of homes in Croatia to elderly
people from foreign countries, thanks to the participation of academician
Suad Efendić from Swedish University. This enables a new project which
could stimulate a number of Croatian emigrants to come back to Croatia and
would also serve to help populating Croatian islands. For all the above it

Research goals: General goal of the research was to sistemize
gerontogogy as a distinctive science which deals with possibilities and
limitations of elderly population's education and improvement of their
life quality. In addition, production of a basic programme of the
University of the Third Age at Open University in Zagreb was attempted.
Both goals were entirely achieved as gerontogogy was structured as a
distinctive science and the programme for the University of the Third Age
made. Since the Ministry agreed to continue with the research for two
years a goal additionally declared was also reached: University of the
Third Age was set up empirically confirming conclusions of the research.
