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.

Following the success of the 2016 and 2018 Jobs and Development Conferences in Washington DC and Bogotá, the World Bank in collaboration with IZA (Institute of Labor Economics) and the Network on Jobs and Development are organizing a follow up conference focused on “Improving Jobs Outcomes in Developing Countries.”
The goal of the symposium is to bring together leading economists working in any area of labour economics. To foster the desired interaction, we ask that participants stay for the entire duration of the conference. The programme will start on Thursday morning (13th) and end on Friday afternoon (14th).
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 Ammersee Lake (near Munich) in Bavaria, Germany.
The 3rd DEC 2019 on Social Institutions and the Economic Performance of Nations: A 21st Century Perspective
The broad theme of DEC 2019 is framed along the lines of the late Douglas North’s seminal contributions of the late last century to address issues arising out of the social and political turbulence affecting the global community in the 21st century. The conference will primarily aim to examine how these issues have been affecting the economic performance of nations at micro and macro levels.
We are pleased to announce the organization of the 18th IZA/SOLE Transatlantic Meeting of Labor Economists to be held at the Ammersee Conference Center in Bavaria, Germany, on June 27-30, 2019.
