Fertility is increasingly determined by the desire and ability to have children at later reproductive ages. This ERC consolidator grant explores the biological, individual and contextual factors related to fertility in the countries where childbearing is being delayed, with an emphasis on ages 30 and above. It links these factors to today’s and tomorrow’s cohort fertility levels.
