The alignment of national research programs on Demographic Change is a major goal of JPI MYBL, including the alignment with European research programs (Horizon 2020). The aim is to coordinate research efforts, avoid overlaps, identify gaps and to pool resources and research infrastructures in efficient ways.
Activities include the mapping of current research efforts and programs in Member States and the exploration of the options for new research infrastructures supporting research on demographic change.
Close contacts, networks and cooperations are developed with other research efforts and partners in the field, especially within the European Research Area (ERA), but also beyond with international partners.
