EuroCohort, GGP and SHARE can deliver a comprehensive picture of the European life course from early years until later life. They cover all the major phases of life and adapt the methods and content of their data collection to suit the target population. These research infrastructures closely collaborate in order to ensure synergies, comparability in the data collected and deliver efficiencies and innovations in data collection processes.
