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).
The annual WPEG conference will take place from Thursday 27th to Friday 28th July 2017 at “The Edge” at the University of Sheffield. Financial support for the 2017 and the 2018 annual conferences will be provided by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). The 2017 plenary address will be given by Professor Thomas Crossley (University of Essex and IFS).
The Programme Committee invites submissions of abstracts from academic, government, and business economists in any field of labour economics and related research areas which are aligned with DWP strategic objectives:
- Run an effective welfare system that enables people to achieve financial independence by providing assistance and guidance into employment;
- Increase saving for, and security in, later life;
- Create a fair and affordable welfare system which improves the life chances of children and adults;
- Deliver outstanding services to our customers and claimants;
- Deliver efficiently: transforming the way we deliver our services to reduce costs and increase efficiency;
- Improving services and reducing costs.
Specific interests include for example: what works to increase employment of people with health conditions and disabilities; in-work progression; recruitment, retraining and retention of older workers; securing adequate retirement incomes; self-employment; migration; social justice and life chances. Analysts in the department are keen to actively engage with emerging economic theory and analysis in these areas.
An electronic copy of the abstract should be submitted by 28th April 2017 via email to email@example.com. Abstracts will be reviewed and then a selection will be invited to submit a full paper based upon the relevance of subject matter to DWP and potential programme fit. It is envisaged that once the abstracts have been reviewed those selected to make full paper submissions will be notified by mid-late May 2017.
