The collaborative research project is financed in the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (€6.5 millions in EU contribution; grant no. 320116).  Launched in February 1, 2013 it will continue until January 31, 2017.

The main objectives of the project are:

  1. To investigate the diversity of family forms, relationships, and life courses in Europe.
  2. To assess the compatibility of existing policies with family changes.
  3. To contribute to evidence-based policy-making.
  4. The project will extend our knowledge on how policies promote well-being, inclusion and sustainable societal development among families.

Multidisciplinary approach: The project team combines a wide range of expertise in social sciences, law and the humanities represented in the consortium of 25 research partners from 15 European countries, and three transnational civil society actors.

Database: A database of the legal content of family forms available in European countries, and another on EC/EU initiatives in core family-policy areas.

Best policy practices: With various stakeholders, government agencies, national and local policy-makers, non-governmental organizations and additional members of the scientific community across Europe, the project will identify and disseminate innovative and best policy practices.
