COORDINATE aims to develop an integrated Birth and Child Cohort Research Community. Currently, policy decisions across Europe are based on data that do not address children and young people's wellbeing sufficiently. COORDINATE scientific community combines partners in the fields of cross-sectional and longitudinal surveys. The project supports and unites researchers and organisations in a community that will develop a comparative birth cohort panel survey research across Europe. COORDINATE is building a community of researchers and organisations that will drive forwards the development of the GUIDE Research Infrastructure. The purpose of the scientific community network is to disseminate key activities and online resources that will support the following objectives:

  • Improving access and usage of key longitudinal data on child wellbeing improving access and usage of longitudinal data, harmonisation of data.

  • Promoting the harmonisation of data.

  • Building capacity to use longitudinal data through webinars, trainings, and onsite and remote visits to core European Research Infrastructures to increase the speed and quality of re-use of data.
