COEURE Workshop on Population, Migration, Aging, Health

ULB, Brussels


COEURE - Cooperation on European Research in Economics is a cooperative action financed by the European Commission within the Seventh Framework Programme. It is a forum which brings together the key stakeholders in the European economic research space – scientists from the different strands of economic research in Europe, users of economic research in the policy community, economic decision makers, and funders of economic research, and which, by a process of stocktaking, consultation and stakeholder engagement, is aimed to formulate an Agenda for Research Funding for Economics in Europe (ARFEE).
