    IZA/OECD Workshop: Applications with Linked Employer-Employee Data

    Paris

    The workshop seeks to bring together researchers who share an interest in using linked employer-employee data for innovative and policy-relevant research. The workshop will take place on April 10 and be preceded by a policy seminar with a keynote speaker on April 9. The workshop is organized in the context of the OECDs LinkEED v 2.0 project that seeks to enhance our understanding of the role of policies in inclusive growth through cross-country analytical work based on linked employer-employee data from different OECD countries. We welcome submissions of applied papers using linked employer-employee data in all areas.

    2nd IZA/OECD Workshop: Climate Change and the Labor Market

    Online

    The IZA/OECD workshops aim to increase synergies between researchers and OECD experts to promote the societal impact of academic research and the relevance of expertise. These workshops are organized twice a year and focus on topics of particular importance to the economy and society. They bring together researchers from the IZA network, OECD experts and policymakers. They take place by videoconference, over half a day, with presentations by experts, researchers and discussions with policymakers.

About the Summer School
The IZA Summer School in Labor Economics was created in 1998, as an annual event taking place at the conference center of Deutsche Post DHL at the Ammersee lake (near Munich) in Bavaria, Germany. After pausing for two years because of the pandemic, we are excited to resume this event in 2022 (in accordance with the applicable COVID-19 regulations).

The objective of the Summer School is to bring together PhD students and senior lecturers to study topics in labor economics. Students have the opportunity to present their work and discuss ideas with established researchers in a relaxed and open atmosphere.

The Summer School is open to advanced graduate students from European universities, engaged in the preparation of a doctoral dissertation or approaching that stage. Due to the current restrictions, 15 students will be selected for this year’s event, based on their preparation to participate in the advanced study of labor economics.

Funding
Accommodation and travel costs will be covered by IZA conditional on attending the entire event.

Kindly note that tax regulations prohibit IZA from fully reimbursing the travel expenses of summer school participants who combine their trip with other destinations or extend their travel by more than 1 day.
