Institutional and Financial Support

Institutional Support

The HFD receives financial and logistical support from its two funding institutions, the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) in Rostock, Germany, and the Vienna Institute of Demography (VID) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna, Austria.

The HFD team thanks all its colleagues for their valuable comments, support, and assistance provided over the years. Our special thanks are due to the former MPIDR director Joshua R. Goldstein for his guidance and encouragement, current MPIDR directors Mikko Myrskylä and Emilio Zagheni for their support, and Dirk Vieregg (MPIDR) and Peter Wilhelm (MPIDR) for computer assistance. We thank our visitors for their indispensable contributions and expert assessment of our work.

We are also very grateful to Wolfgang Lutz and Alexia Fürnkranz-Prskawetz, current directors of the Vienna Institute of Demography, for their continuous support of the HFD.

Financial Support

The initial work by the VID was supported by the REPRO project (Seventh Framework Programme, SSH-CT-2008-217173). In 2012-2017, the VID team (Kryštof Zeman and Tomáš Sobotka) was supported by the EURREP project, funded by the European Research Council (FP7/2007-2013)/ERC Grant agreement nº 284238).
