(Multinational Advancement of Research Infrastructures on Ageing)
The Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) has so far collected three waves of data through more than 110.000 interviews of individuals aged 50 and over throughout Europe.
The project SHARE M4 (Multinational Advancement of Research Infrastructures on Ageing) is designed to follow seamlessly the SHARE LEAP project, which delivered a re-designed survey instrument for the fourth wave in autumn 2010. Beginning there, this project will fund all key supranational tasks in the years 2011 through 2014. These tasks include control and dissemination of waves 4 and 5, and preparation of innovations for waves 5 and 6.
The SHARE M4 project especially aims to
- intensify the network of scientists designing and using the SHARE data through a set of networking and coordination activities.
- improve the multinational services for users in EU member countries, associated countries and third countries.
- push the state-of-the-art in interdisciplinary panel construction further, such that SHARE will maintain its status as a research infrastructure of highest scientific excellence.
