Family, Generations and Health

The research carried out by the group "Family, Generations and Health", in the course of national and international research projects, has produced important contributions, both for the advancement and accumulation of knowledge and for the design and evaluation of public policies at national and international levels.

The GI has also developed an important activity in receiving and training younger researchers of different nationalities, either through doctoral training, or by integrating young PhD holders in its research activities.

For the triennium 2022-2024, the GI will seek to increase the research funded through competitive calls, the rise in scientific outputs and the growth of the research team, together with the articulation with - Laboratory for Social Studies on Birth, a research structure of CIES launched in 2017, and with the Thematic Line "Societal Health" of the SocioDigital Lab for Public Policy of Iscte.
