This report summarizes the major findings of a survey undertaken by the Population Activities Unit of the UN Economic Commission for Europe in collaboration with the U.S. National Institutes on Aging on aging-related research carried out in Europe. "The goals of the survey were to take stock of population ageing-related research in the European countries, to identify innovative data collection and research strategies and high-quality survey instruments that can be used throughout the region in future data collection and research efforts, and to find out what type of cross-national ageing research should be initiated in Europe during the coming years." A companion volume entitled "Directory of Population Ageing-Related Research Projects in Europe" is being published simultaneously.
