Luxembourg joins pan-European Research Infrastructure
27 October 2021
Growing Up In Digital Europe: EuroCohort.
As Europe’s first cross-national birth cohort study, GUIDE (Growing Up In Digital Europe) has been included in the 2021 European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) Roadmap – marking it among the highest quality and most valuable research infrastructures in Europe.
How can researchers help to understand transitions in young people’s lives across Europe? How can patterns then be recognised to identify the circumstances and experiences in earlier life that impact a given outcome later in life?
GUIDE will be Europe’s first comparative birth cohort survey, a Research Infrastructure that will be an important source of high quality longitudinal statistical evidence to support the development of social policies which will enhance the well-being of children, young people and their families across Europe for many years to come. The Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER), a member of Research Luxembourg, is a core partner of GUIDE/EuroCohort.
Providing a sophisticated dynamic analysis of child and young people’s well-being across Europe
GUIDE/EuroCohort will be an accelerated cohort survey including a sample of new born infants as well as a sample of school age children. Both cohorts will be surveyed using a common questionnaire and data collection methodology at regular intervals until the age of 24 years. The collected data will allow a sophisticated dynamic analysis of child and young people’s well-being across Europe. As the children and young people age, an increasing amount of data will develop, which will allow to identify which national policies have made impacts and show where policy interventions can make significant improvements.
The GUIDE project will provide policy makers with high quality data from which policy interventions can be developed and evaluated. This is instrumental in Europe’s goal to contribute towards the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals as it will offer a greater insight into topics such as poverty, health, well-being, and education.
As part of the GUIDE consortium, LISER will mobilise the national expertise in the fields of longitudinal survey methodology, as well as child and youth well-being, thereby contributing to the European comparative capacity building.
LISER researcher, Dr. Denisa M. Sologon, whose main interests are in the quantitative analysis of large data sources (administrative, survey) and the development and application of policy microsimulation models to aid the design, evaluation and improvement of public policy will lead the initiative in Luxembourg.
“The inclusion of GUIDE on the ESFRI 2021 Roadmap is a ground-breaking accomplishment for child well-being research in Europe. It highlights the importance of comparative longitudinal surveys on child well-being for policy-making across Europe.”Denisa M. Sologon
