The ID research group is located at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and has a long tradition of expertise in demography-oriented data analysis (since 1977). Embedded in sociological and demographic theory, we conduct research on population issues with a focus on Belgium and Europe.
Since January 1, 2013, ID's research program has been recognised as a Strategic Research Program of the VUB with an important funding for the period 2013-2017.
The SRP project 'Demographic challenges of the 21st century' gathers insights acquired in the central research areas of ID to provide informed answers to some of the most pressing demographic questions in society today.
