URL, JabRef BibTex, Abstract
The GGP is a cross-national research infrastructure that was established in 2001 and which aims at understanding how the lives of individuals evolve over the whole life course, from young adulthood to older ages (more information can be found on our website: www.ggp-i.org). It furthermore aims at understanding the ways in which various factors, such as public policy, affect family life including the relationships between generations and between genders. It is a research infrastructure built on the principle of open access. It provides comparable micro-level data from 19 countries as well as related contextual data. In this paper, we first provide an overview of the GGP including its key features (i.e. what is the GGP?) and its capabilities (i.e. why do we need a GGP?). We then provide examples of some of its scientific accomplishments as well as its potential in terms of answering emerging research questions. We then discuss the way forward including our strategic plan through to 2020.
