This conference & workshop seeks to explore the use of economic and econometric techniques to study educational issues. We invite the submission of original research from colleagues working in the area. We especially welcome research which applies identification strategies as difference-in-differences, instrumental variables, regression discontinuity, static and dynamic choice modeling, (non-)parametric frontier models and structural equations. Both macro and micro-economic topics are of interest to this workshop.

Eric Hanushek provides an inaugural lecture on Tuesday, March 27, 2018 from 4.30 pm till 6.30 pm. The lecture overviews some of his recent work on teacher quality, school quality, accountability and equity in education. The lecture is open to a wide public thanks to a research grant from the Flemish government (SONO Center of expertise on Education).
