Workshop International conference on the quality of early childhood education and care

In recent years, early childhood education and care (ECEC) services have received increasing attention from researches and policy makers in many OECD countries. A growing body of interdisciplinary literature shows that attendance of ECEC services of higher quality is consistently positively associated with children’s cognitive and socio-emotional development. This is an important finding. However, the results differ by the way quality is approached and measured. In addition, ECEC services also address parents and families as a whole. To-date, less evidence exists how ECEC quality may matter to outcomes other than child development, including maternal employment and parents’ subjective wellbeing. This workshop aims to present scholarship from different disciplines which investigates predictors and consequences of various aspects of ECEC quality using a variety of data sets.

    Event DIW Women´s Finance Summit

    Almost ten years after the crisis, the financial sector is still in the midst of a far-reaching transformational process. The macroeconomic environment and regulatory frameworks are changing profoundly and fast, whereas new technologies challenge established players – both from the public and private sector – as never before. These developments and their implications for the financial services industry and economies at large will be discussed in particular by leading female exponents. Topics such as how organizations benefit from a sound gender balance in management and supervisory boards will also be part of the discussions.

    Online registration is now open. Updated information about the event including the program are available at the Conference Website. We look forward to welcoming you at this inaugural Women´s Finance Summit.

    Conference 2nd annual BCCP Conference
    Regulatory Challenges in Digital Markets: Algorithms and Platform Competition

    The tremendous growth of digital transactions – mainly through online platforms – has profoundly affected the way we interact and has opened vast opportunities to improve our lives. The disruptive impact of this process is driven by one core feature: its ability to reduce inefficiencies. Consumers have benefited from an unprecedented proliferation of new services and products that previously were simply too costly to be developed and marketed to customers. At the same time, network effects in platform business models have brought market power concerns back to the front stage. Who reaps the largest benefits and profits in super-efficient online markets? Consumers? Innovative firms? Incumbent firms? This conference aims to tackle these questions and discuss the need for and appropriateness of policy interventions in such quickly evolving markets. We especially will focus on regulatory issues related to the development of sharing economy platforms and the increased use of algorithms.
