The development of welfare systems was one of the defining characteristics of the 20th century, especially in Europe. In times of change, it is important to re-think “the welfare state”. It is for this reason that New Opportunities for Research Funding Agency Co-operation in Europe (NORFACE) network has launched the major transnational programme ERA-NET Plus "Welfare State Futures". The title emphasizes that the future is not pre-determined. The aim of this programme is to encourage innovative thinking: to stimulate novel research questions, to orient research towards the future, and to bring disciplines together in collective and comparative projects. In these ways, it hopes to foster theoretical, conceptual and methodological innovation.
