Population Europe

Population Europe is the collaborative network of Europe’s leading demographic research institutes and centres.[1][2][3][4] It was founded in 2009. Its aim is to coordinate and strengthen research efforts and to contribute reliable facts and findings to public discussions of population issues.[5][6][7]

The network operates under the auspices of the European Association for Population Studies (EAPS)[8] and is supported by the European Commission.[6]

Population Europe currently includes 25 European research institutes; it further collaborates with institutions working on population and policy issues.[9]


Population Europe has two branches: the Council of Advisors and the Information Centre.[10]

The Council of Advisors assembles researchers with demonstrated and outstanding expertise on demographic analysis and on the political, economic, social, geographic and additional factors that influence population structure and change.[11]

The Information Centre coordinates the dissemination of demographic facts and findings on population trends and policies to a scientific audience, as well as to policy makers, influential citizens, journalists, teachers, students and the general public.[11]

The Population Europe Secretariat is hosted by the Max Planck Society. Since June 1, 2010, the Secretariat is situated at the WissenschaftsForum at the Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin.[6]


Population Europe is engaged in different activities aimed at the dissemination of policy-relevant research findings on population developments. Among these are the organization of Population Europe Events,[2][12][13][14] the maintaining and updating of the Population Europe Website, and developing and maintaining the Population and Policy Database (coordinated by the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research and the Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy).[7] Publications include e.g. the policy brief series “Population & Policy Compact”, the infoletter “Demographic Insights”, and the research summaries “Population Digests”.[6]
