Projects related to the realization of the SHARE survey

Between 2009 and 2017 CenEA was the Polish partner in the international consortium (SHARE-ERIC) responsible for the development of the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE). Michal Myck, CenEA’s Director, was the Polish country team leader for SHARE between 2005-2017, and supervised the data collection in Poland in waves 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7. Monika Oczkowska has been the Polish SHARE country team operator since joining CenEA in 2012 (since January 2018 through cooperation with the Warsaw School of Economics which has taken over the coordination of the SHARE project in Poland).
