    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.

IFS at 50: The future of income in retirement
October 21, 2019 - October 25, 2019

The British economy is going to face a number of big issues over the next fifty years. Whether it is reforming the tax and benefit system, managing an ageing population, or preparing for the workplace of the future, there are plenty of challenges and opportunities ahead.

He will then join Professor Sarah Harper (Founding Director of the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing) and Sir Steve Webb (Royal London, former Pensions Minister and IFS alumnus) for a conversation about how we should think about supporting future generations of pensioners in the decades to come.
