Societal openness, normative flux, and the social modification of heritability

Project description

Tracing genetic effects across social contexts

Throughout our life, it is the constant interaction between hereditary and social factors that enables the development of our unique abilities. Studies have shown that one’s social environment can either stimulate or limit inherited capabilities. Despite advances in genetics and Big Data processing, it remains impossible to assess genetic impacts across social contexts. The EU-funded OPENFLUX project will study changes and interactions in modern societies across life course and transmission processes from parents to children. It will combine advanced techniques from molecular and behaviour genetics with best-quality population register data and measurement of socio-environmental factors. The project will bring new insights and new horizons in socio-environmental research.
