Research centre



The Institut Fédératif de Recherche 12 is a multi-disciplinary research centre, created by INSERM, the Fondation nationale de gérontologie, and several universities. It brings together researchers and lecturers from different health sciences (epidemiology, public health) and the social sciences (social psychology, economics, sociology). It functions as a network covering the themes of health and ageing on the one hand, and health systems and help for older people on the other hand. The Centre was created in 1999 for a period of 4 years.


The Centre's aims are to develop research on ageing in public health contexts. This is undertaken by confronting and putting together different approaches and materials from diverse research teams from different disciplines in order to broaden an understanding of the problems posed by the health of older people. This approach is linked to life course trajectories and by macrosocial analyses of social policies, intermediate analyses of institutions and microsocial analyses of the behaviour and strategies of health care professionals and their users. This multidisciplinary approach has the aim of achieving a better understanding of processes that can lead to the sharing of knowledge between researchs and professionals. The Centre offers: -Quality research and presentation of findings -An attractive environment for established researchers as well as future researchers concerned with themes on ageing and public health All European countries are faced with the same problems linked to ageing populations, but the responses to these problems are not the same. The links developed between European researchers working in similar fields must be developed. Teams should have a visibility and work within a multidisciplinary setting in order to further understand ageing processes, problems linked to the second stage of the life course, and policies concerned with medico-social problems of older people. The Centre's scientific committee is composed of researchers from different disciplines and from different countries.

Main research areas

These are twofold : -Developing a website for exchanging information and data on quality of life, diseases of older people and the response of health care services -Developing a data base on previous research in collaboration with the Fondation nationale de gérontologie.
