Founded in 1970, the NIDI was affiliated to the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) in 2003 and is the only social science institute of the Academy. NIDI is the national demographic institute of the Netherlands. Its mission is to build and maintain a knowledge infrastructure for population issues in order to address the challenges that demographic developments pose to individuals and society. Population growth and decline, mobility and population distribution, population ageing and population diversity, life course dynamics, intergenerational relations, and health and longevity are but a few of the dimensions of the ever-changing landscape of population issues which make up the population challenge. Demographic research is needed to address this challenge and to study population trends and their impacts on economic development, the environment, social networks, social cohesion, health and care systems, retirement and social security issues, family life and wellbeing. NIDI has a long standing expertise in research including studies in the various EU Framework programmmes among which the most recent include MicMac (Bridging the micro-macro gap in population forecasting; – DG Research, SP23-CT-2005-006637) and MIMOSA ((Modeling of statistical data on migration and migrant populations) – DG ESTAT, 31300.2006.002-2007.766). NIDI was MEDPRO Partner and provided the demographic projections for the project.
