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


    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


    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 Workshop
In 2022, the 5th Annual Workshop on Gender and Family Economics will be focused on family economics and centered around: "Families as an Insurance Mechanism".

The workshop will be held online. Usual paper presentations and discussions will be combined with a new format in which papers of junior researchers are discussed in small groups.

The workshop will enable participants to engage in discussions about pressing issues in research and policy around this year’s theme and receive valuable feedback.
Given the anticipated popularity of this workshop, not everyone's request to participate will be accomodated. In fairness, anyone accepted to the workshop, is expected to commit to participating for the full two days.

Researchers interested in participating should submit an extended abstract or a full paper by March 15, 2022 using the online application form.

Notifications will be sent by April 15, 2022.
