FamiliesAndSocieties is a major European research project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme with the aim to investigate the diversity of family forms, relationships and life courses in Europe, to assess the compatibility of existing policies with these changes, and to contribute to evidence-based policy-making. Coordinated by Associate Professor Livia Sz. Oláh of SPaDE and the Stockholm University Demography Unit (SUDA), the consortium brings together 25 universities, research institutes from 15 European countries, and a large number of national and international stakeholders. The project is funded from February 2013 for four years with about 6.5 million EUR in EU contribution.
