projektaiHUMRE is an infrastructure research network of human well-being and development. Its main purpose is to provide excellent conditions for conducting high quality interdisciplinary research in the area of human well-being and development both at the national and at the international level. Fulfilment of this goal necessitates us to ensure availability of scientific data for researchers, to give generous access to research hardware, software and other material and non-material scientific research instruments. In addition to that, we also provide all the necessary research, educational and technical services for undergraduate, graduate and PhD students as well as independent researchers and scientists. At the same time we strive to improve the expertise both of the national and international academic communities in the aforementioned research areas.

mokslasHUMRE is comprised of two parts:
I. Multidisciplinary scientific research and database access.
We continually engage in research of health, ageing and retirement. One of our most recent research projects is the Wave 7 of SHARE – Lithuania. One of the results of this project shall be a comprehensive and accessible database, available for researchers from all over Europe and the rest of the world, that now will include data on Lithuanian ageing population.  

II. RI's material base and related services. HUMRE provides access to research equipment and other means of conducting human well-being and development research as well as evaluating cognitive, physical and social functionality of humans. Research means include: research equipment, evaluation instruments, research data, specialised scientific literature and other sources of knowledge  all designed for social science and biomedical research.

HUMRE infrastructure was founded by and its activities are being coordinated jointly by the faculties of Philosophy and Natural Sciences of Vilnius University.

By the decree of the Scientific Council of Lithuania (7th of July 2014, No. VIII-22) HUMRE infrastructure was included in an updated version of the Lithuanian Research Infrastructure Roadmap.
