Age is universal: with sufficient lifespan, all living people join each age category. Age-related concerns are global: Countries worldwide currently grapple with changing age demographics. Similarly, this map reflects the countries from which our research team hail and/or work. We are proud of our global representation and strive for our work to have that same level of impact.

Based at NYU Stern, but with a worldwide collaborator network, the AGE Initiative conducts research on the cutting-edge topics of the increasingly older and intergenerational workplace and workforce. Broad study themes include age, ageism, and generational issues, and related organizational, HR, legal, public policy, and societal implications. 

Our research focus emphasizes two key trends that affect industrialized economies around the globe: the aging workforce and the multi-generational workforce. Nevertheless, very little scholarship elucidates the implications of these trends for the modern workplace. Filling in the gaps, we seek to be at the forefront of research on these topics. Our ultimate aim is to help maximize the productivity of businesses and societies within an aging, intergenerational world, and to encourage scholars to acknowledge age as a consequential factor in its own right.

We are always looking for study participants of all ages, regardless of current employment status! We offer both in-person studies and online surveys.

In-person studies take place at our NYU offices: NYU Stern's Tisch Hall, 40 West 4th Street in Manhattan. Participants will be asked to complete various work-related tasks and surveys. In-person studies take between 30-60 minutes and pay in cash immediately upon completion.
Online studies can be completed anywhere and anytime. Participants will receive an email with a link to a survey. Most online surveys will only take a few minutes, but vary in their length and compensation.
Virtually all participants find the studies stimulating and, at times, even fun. If interested, please fill out the form linked below, and we will follow up with you if you are eligible. The information you provide will be used solely for the purpose of contacting you for research studies. It will not be sold to anyone, or used for any other purpose other than scheduling your participation in AGE@NYU research studies.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have paused all in-person research activities. However, those who are interested in in-person studies can still indicate so on the participant eligibility survey. We will reach out to you once it is safe to resume in-person studies.

*Click here to fill out our participant eligibility survey*



We are always happy to talk with those interested in helping run research studies! We especially value conscientious, detail-oriented individuals whose broad goals or experiences reflect our research mission.

How to apply to join us depends on your current affiliation:

Current NYU Stern Undergraduates may apply through our posting on the Stern Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) at the beginning of each semester. In rare cases, students may propose a thesis project under the supervision of Prof. North through the Stern Honors Program. Click the links above for more information.

Current NYU non-Stern Undergraduates, NYU Stern MBA Students, and Non-NYU Affiliates can apply to join our lab by filling out this form.

We look forward to working with you soon!
