Blanka Klímová, Petra Poulová, Ivana Šimonová, Pavel Pražák, Anna Cierniak-Emerych

The problem of the developed countries is the aging of the population. Developing countries, for the time being, do not experience it so urgently yet due to the lower average age of the population, but their standard of living is also beginning to improve. In 2000, the percentage of older individuals aged 65+ years reached 12.4%. In 2030, this number should rise to 19% and in 2050 to 22% (Transgenerational, 2009). In Europe this population group aged 65+ represent 18% of the 503 million Europeans, which should almost double by 2060 (Patterson, 2006). This trend of aging population causes additional problems such as increased costs on the treatment and care of those elderly people (Maresova et al., 2015a; 2015b). Therefore, there is ongoing effort to extend the active life of this group of people in order to allow them to stay economically and socially independent. And current technological devices and services can assist them in this process.

Eliška Jirásková

Assessment of location factors cannot be considered stable either from the point of view of time, or that of particular economic sectors. However, it is possible to define economic sectors which can be considered as demanding a large amount of space in terms of location factors and economic sectors which are spatially neutral.

Typology of Foreign Students Interested in Studying at Czech Universities

Marta Žambochová

The main motivation of our research was to analyze alternative ways of funding tertiary education. Primarily, we focused on the tuition fees payable by foreign students. The main research questions were: - Who (or what) influences the student in deciding whether to travel? - What is expected from a student studying abroad? - What the student feels could be an obstacle to studying abroad? - What is the basic amount for monthly living expenses while studying abroad, which the student is willing to accept?
