The need to go beyond GDP to measure the well-being of people and societal progress is now fully recognized, also at a political level. The EU FP7 project e-Frame - European Framework for Measuring Progress - aims at fostering the on-going debate on the measurement of well-being and the progress of societies among all relevant stakeholders, developing a European network and supporting National Statistical Institutes' measurement initiatives in this area. e-Frame will enhance the relevance of well-being measures and analysis for addressing key policy issues and will propose how to develop the future research agenda in this field. The dedicated website www.eframeproject.eu provides a detailed project description.
