Horizon 2020-funded Generations and Gender Programme new phase officially launched this week

25 January 2017

The Generations and Gender Programme (GGP), hosted by NiDi, marked the launch of the EUR 2 million Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme in Paris on Thursday, 26 January 2017. The three-year project aims to ensure long-term sustainability of GGP as a pan-European research infrastructure.

On Thursday, January 26th 2017, the Generations and Gender Programme (GGP) marked the launch of its new three-year project during a kick-off event at the French Institute for Demographic Studies, INED, in Paris. The project, entitled GGP-EPI (Evaluate Plan Initiate) is funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation framework (H2020-INFRADEV-2016-2017, Development and long-term sustainability of new pan-European research infrastructures).

GGP-EPI Consortium Members

The GGP, launched in 2001, is an international, open-source research infrastructure devoted to the study of family dynamics, gender relations, relationships between generations and factors that influence demographic change processes. The programme is coordinated by the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NiDi).

The €2 million Euro grant positions the GGP to pursue two strategic aims. Firstly, the GGP will continue to advance its scientific achievements as an innovative and unique open source research infrastructure for longitudinal and cross-national study of population change processes. Secondly, the research and innovation grant enables the consortium to initiate a transition in the GGP’s governance and financial structures and processes from a network of research institutes to a research infrastructure with a strong Central Hub.

This transition poises the GGP to continue to provide comparable cross-national data, gathered using innovative and cost effective means. These aims will contribute to expanding user uptake thus furthering GGP’s overall societal and policy impact goals. The long term goal is the successful application for inclusion in the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) Roadmap in 2020.

The GGP EPI partners include the following research and academic institutes:

  1. Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute, The Hague, The Netherlands
  2. Institut National d'Études Démographiques, Paris, France  
  3. Hungarian Central Statistical Office, Budapest, Hungary
  4. Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands
  5. Warsaw School of Economics, Warsaw, Poland
