The Danish SHARE-DK research infrastructure consortium commenced in 2015 with participation of University of Aarhus, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen Business School, the National Research Centre for the Working Environment and University of Southern Denmark. All of these institutions became co-financing partners and they have a representative in the management group of the consortium. Moreover, the research consortium was financed with grants from “Styrelsen for Forskning og Innovation” (the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation). The collection of the Danish SHARE data from wave 6 and 7 was financed through these funds.
In 2018 the research consortium consists of University of Southern Denmark, University of Aarhus, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen Business School and University of Roskilde, who are all financing partners and besides are represented in the management board of the consortium. The research consortium will contribute to the financing of the Danish SHARE data for wave 8, 9 and 10.
REGLINK-SHAREDK is a national research infrastructure that consists of a database that contains all the Danish SHARE interview data (wave 1-6) linked with Danish register data from Statistics Denmark. This will provide researchers from Danish research institutions with the ability to analyze employment behavior, health conditions, ageing processes etc. and thereby provide evidenced based solutions to many of the societal challenges, which Denmark and many other countries in Europe are facing.
Access to linked data
It is possible for researchers employed at Danish research institutions to get access to linked data for research purposes. Researchers must also be registered as users of SHARE data in order to gain access. Find more information here.
The management group of the research consortium is responsible for the maintenance and use of the REGLINK-SHAREDK database in accordance with regulations from Statistics Denmark, the Danish Data Protection Agency and the management of SHARE.
