The aim of project is to widen collaboration between countries outside SHARE research (Survey of Health, Aging and Retirement in Europe) area. SHARE is a research infrastructure for studying the effects of health, social, economic and environmental policies over the life-course of European citizens and beyond. SHARE is centrally coordinated by Prof. Dr. h.c. Axel Börsch-Supan, Ph.D. at the Munich Center for the Economics of Aging (MEA), Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy. It is harmonized with the U.S. Health and Retirement Study (HRS) and the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA) and has become a role model for several ageing surveys worldwide.
The SHAE project is funded by the EU Commission (Horizon), the US National Institute on Aging, and nation-al sources, especially the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
