LIVES Members

The LIVES Centre is a place of expertise, exchange and scientific debate for the study of the life course. It aims to promote interdisciplinary, inter-institutional and international collaborations in this field of research.
Any researcher from the Universities of Lausanne and Geneva (professors, lecturers, postdocs, assistants, doctoral students) involved in life course research can apply to join the LIVES Center as a member. In addition, researchers from other institutions (universities, universities of applied science) interested in joining our network can become associate members.
