3rd IZA/HSE Workshop on Skills and Preferences and Labor Market Outcomes in Post-transition and Emerging EconomiesSt. Petersburg, Russia
Most empirical research on skills (cognitive and non-cognitive) and preferences has largely relied on data from high-income, industrialized countries. There is, however, a growing literature that extends this line of research to post-transition and emerging economies, which may be of particular scientific interest because it gives the opportunity to study contexts with a much wider variability of conditions.

The joint Cedefop/OECD symposium on apprenticeship brings together policy makers, practitioners and researchers from around the world to consider new research exploring the next steps for apprenticeship provision. The symposium organisers would welcome contributions on how apprenticeship provision is changing or would need to change in response to external mega trends, such as socio-demographic and socio-economic changes, new technologies and labour market changes, new forms of work organisation, trends in education and training.London, United Kingdom
The Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019, and to mark the occasion they will be holding a series of events throughout the year where they draw on this experience to consider these big issues and discuss what evidence-based analysis can tell us about how to understand and respond to them. Events in this series will feature expert insight from IFS researchers and key commentators on each topic, and there will be plenty of time for discussion and debate.IZA, Bonn

Call for papers: 'Labour is not a commodity', today: the value of work and its rules between innovation and traditionBergamo, Italy
ADAPT’s International Conference this year is on the topic of “'Labour is not a commodity', today: the value of work and its rules between innovation and tradition". The X international conference on the new Great Transformation of Work is organized in partnership with the ILO and CIELO Laboral Network and under the auspices of the World Employment Confederation (WEC).
Today, over 66 million youth are without a job globally and nearly 145 million youth are working, yet living in poverty. Launched in 2016, Decent Jobs for Youth has evolved as the global initiative to scale up action and impact on youth employment under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
In 2017, partners of Decent Jobs for Youth prepared thematic plans of action anchored in rigorous and empirical evidence. The plans highlight what works, identify innovations, and offer concrete ideas to scale up action and impact across the thematic priorities. With a concrete value proposition, Decent Jobs for Youth launched its engagement platform in November 2017, expanding the alliance with strategic partners from governments, social partners, youth and civil society, private sector and beyond. It is centred on the commitments of partners to take joint action on youth employment at local, country, regional and global level in line with the strategy and guiding principles of Decent Jobs for Youth.
In 2018, Decent Jobs for Youth will be translating evidence into action at country level. To support scalability, partners will direct efforts towards identifying innovations that work. This effort includes initiating a conversation about innovative financing for youth employment and exploring cutting-edge mechanisms with potential for wide replication and high impact on labour market outcomes of youth.
The event brings together partners of Decent Jobs for Youth and other key youth employment actors to:
- Stimulate innovative thinking and collaboration on youth employment advancing Decent Jobs for Youth’s strategy for 2018-2019.
- Exchange lessons learned and good practices on innovative financing to scale up action on youth employment.
- Create an open space for collaboration and networking under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, launch new commitments for Decent Jobs for Youth, and highlight how existing commitments translate our guiding principles into action.
