EuroREACH informs Joint Programme Initiative (JPI)

The Fast-Track Data Project of the JPI 'More Years, Better Lives – The Challenges and Opportunities of Demographic Change' has been informed by EuroREACH output.

The JPI Fast-Track Project aims to describe and assess currently available data sources used for identifying demographic change and seeks to inform the development of the Strategic Research Agenda of the European Union. The JPI ‘More Years, Better Lives’ is an initiative of Member States to enhance better coordination between European and national research programmes.

At the 1st Scientific Working Group of the JPI Fast-Track Project, EuroREACH assessment criteria for evaluating relevant data sources were adopted by all JPI member countries and by the Scientific Coordinator. By that, the EuroREACH project has achieved an important twinning with the development of the future Strategic Research Agenda.
