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.

Reference to Liechtenstein

SHARE data have been collected in 28 European countries, but Liechtenstein is not yet covered.
This project aims to take a first step towards collecting a Liechtenstein SHARE dataset. This would allow Liechtenstein to be better integrated into the European research framework.
The project leader, Ieva Reine, is the head of the SHARE country team in Latvia and has a lot of experience with the collection of the SHARE dataset. Thus, this cooperation offers a great opportunity to benefit from this knowledge and transfer it to Liechtenstein.
