About the Workshop

The aim of the workshop is to bring together about 25 researchers working on the economics of education discussing themes of
  • Determinants of skill formation
  • Changing returns to education
  • Technological change, digitization and education
  • Inputs into educational production
  • Efficiency of interventions
  • Unintended policy consequences
We specifically encourage but do not exclusively focus on submissions that highlight the interplay between education system and labor market against the background of a changing world of work.
The keynote lecture will be given by Prof. John N. Friedman (Brown University).
