 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
Boštjan Kerbler has PhD in Social Geography and works as a researcher at the Urban Planning Institute
of the Republic of Slovenia, the main central Slovenian research institution in the fields of spatial
planning. He is specialised in demographic changes, ageing population and
accessibility/planning/housing for the elderly and functionally impaired. He participated in several
national and international projects on:
  • innovative housing solutions for the elderly,
  • ageing at home (e.g. home adaptations, innovative care & services, ICT solutions for remote home
    care),
  • planning and design of urban neighbourhoods for the needs of the elderly and disabled – age-friendly
    communities (e.g. ensuring barrier-free access, implementing assistive technologies in the built
    environment, etc. for ensuring inclusion and participation of the elderly in the local communities),
  • accessibility for the persons with disabilities,
  • renewal of large housing estates (from the perspective of the elderly and disabled).


  • He and his research group have experiences also in the fields, such as:
  • demographic changes and urban planning/urban governance,
  • social innovations for empowering people,
  • social economy/social entrepreneurship.


  • We endeavor to provide living and working environments that meet the needs and desires of the
    elderly.
