End of October 2022, the Generations and Gender Programme entered a new era of its existence with the kick-off of the GGP-5D project. This new project will lead the GGP onto an institutionalised pathway of European Research Infrastructure Consortia.
The main objective of the GGP-5D project is to enhance the GGP’s long-term sustainability as a permanent research infrastructure (RI) by establishing its own legal entity. At present the GGP is the only RI focused on addressing key scientific and societal challenges related to the causes and consequences of demographic changes. The GGP collects, processes and disseminates cross-nationally comparable longitudinal data on young adults, families, generational exchanges, and the life courses of women and men.
The efforts within the GGP-5D project will contribute to the quality of the European Research Area in the field of population studies and provide solid ground for further investment in the GGP.

We are pleased to announce that the ESFRI Roadmap 2021, which includes the Generations and Gender Programme (GGP), will officially be launched on December 7 via a half-day online conference.
The ESFRI Roadmap 2021 (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures) is a strategic document that identifies vital research infrastructures in Europe. Its mission is to ensure a coherent and strategic approach to policy making. The official launch will include a comprehensive presentation and discussion of the ESFRI Roadmap 2021, followed by the presentation of 11 new Research Infrastructure Projects, including the Generations and Gender Programme (GGP), and will feature sessions on strategic research infrastructure policy challenges.
As one of ESFRI’s Research Infrastructures, the GGP is supported in its aim to answer pressing scientific and societal questions on population and family dynamics and its accumulated data will continue to be a valuable resource for the Social Sciences in terms of research and policy making. The successful inclusion on the ESFRI Roadmap underlines the high standards the GGP has received in terms of scientific excellence and maturity. We thank all countries that supported our application.
