The National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) "LIVES - Overcoming vulnerability: life course perspectives" aims to promote dialogue between research and the society: politics, economics, institutions, associations, media, general public.

The following pages (see menu on the left) will give you an overview of the different services offered by our outreach team, whose contacts are:

Policy makers / businesses / institutions / associations

Should you wish to establish links with life course research so as to organise an event, produce publications, find keynote speakers or launch any kind of initiative bridging social policy and the academic world, our responsible for knowledge transfer is at your disposal

Media / general public

Should you be looking for an expert, a professor or researcher in the field of vulnerability or of the life course - family, work, unemployment, health, migration, seniors, social inequality, stress, etc. - or in case you have any question about our research in general, please contact our communication officer
