Upcoming events of DIW Berlin http://www.diw.de/en/diw_01.c.100419.en/publications_and_events/events/calendar/calendar.html Events en http://diw.de/sixcms/media.php/37/diw_logo_farbe_mini.jpg DIW Berlin http://diw.de/ Regulation of Sovereign Exposures http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.613151.en

The sovereign-bank nexus remains a major vulnerability of the euro area. While the introduction of the Single Supervisory Mechanism and the Single Resolution Mechanism have helped to mitigate the nexus, no progress has been made with respect to the regulation of sovereign exposures. In the talk, Isabel Schnabel explains why the sovereign-bank nexus matters, how sovereign exposures could be regulated (including some empirical simulations), and how this issue is related to other reform streams in the euro area.

The 12th Berlin IO Day http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.669654.en

The Berlin IO Day is a one-day workshop sponsored by the Berlin Centre for Consumer Policies (BCCP) and supported by the Berlin's leading academic institutions, including DIW Berlin, ESMT Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Technische Universität Berlin which takes place twice a year, in the Fall and in the Spring. The aim is to create an international forum for high quality research in Industrial Organization in the heart of Berlin, one of Europe's most vibrant and intellectually lively cities.

Introduction to the Socio-Economic Panel Study: From raw data to longitudinal analyses http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.670247.en

The purpose of the workshop is to introduce and familiarize researchers with the file structure and potential of the SOEP panel data. Particularly, the workshop focuses on the longitudinal components of the dataset. We demonstrate and discuss the ability of the longitudinal household design to
a) validate causal interpretations,
b) combine characteristics from different phases of the life course and
c) track dynamics between different household members over time.

Eating Meat 2019 - Determinants, consequences and interventions http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.669643.en

The goal of this workshop is to bring together scholars from the social sciences working on the various aspects of human consumption of animal products. We want to engage in a discussion about what we know and do not know about the consumption of meat and dairy, its economic and environmental consequences, as well as possible ways to design effective interventions. Topics include, but are not limited to, psychological aspects of why humans eat (or do not eat) meat, the economic analyses of information effects and other interventions on the consumption of animal products, and the evaluations of regulatory instruments like taxes.

SOEPcampus@GESIS Köln http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.618320.en

This two day workshop offers a well-grounded and practically oriented introduction into this sophisticated data source. Participants will be introduced to the content of the study, its data-structure, sample selection and weighting strategy and they will be provided with an overview over the study documentation. Additionally we will discuss the specific potentials for longitudinal data analyses provided by the SOEP. In a variety of “Hands-on Sessions” participants will learn to work with SOEP data, the data-management tool Paneldata.org and documentation material and thereby mimic the entire process from identifying and finding variables containing specific information in the dataset to the creation of the final dataset for analysis and first empirical investigations. The practical part of the workshop requires familiarity with methods of empirical analysis and basic programming skills in STATA.

InGRID-2 Expert Workshop 'Comparative Analysis of Longitudinal Data on Educational Outcomes’ http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.669556.en

Educational outcomes are crucial for social participation and labor market opportunities. To develop strategies to improve people’s social and economic prospects, governments are increasingly interested in international comparisons of educational opportunities and outcomes. The workshop ‘Comparative Analysis of Longitudinal Data on Educational Outcomes’ aims to describe and discuss educational transitions and outcomes in Europe across the life course. To evaluate educational outcomes in different educational systems, this workshop focuses on the use of various longitudinal datasets, which are key in going beyond merely descriptive approaches and getting closer to causal analysis. Contributions with a focus on comparability of longitudinal datasets, statistical methods for harmonizing longitudinal datasets, and comparative analysis of longitudinal educational trajectories are especially welcome.

This expert workshop is targeted at experienced researchers. It is also open to other academics, policy professionals, and data users, and will provide participants with opportunities to discuss their projects and to network with international experts and colleagues in the field.

SOEP 2020 http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.635298.en

The 14th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference (SOEP2020) will be held in Berlin on July 9-10, 2020 at DIW Berlin. The conference provides researchers who use the SOEP (including the SOEP part of the Cross-National Equivalent File (CNEF) and LIS/LWS data) with the opportunity to present and discuss their work with their peers. Researchers of all disciplines (e.g., economics, demography, geography, political science, public health, psychology, and sociology) are invited to submit an abstract.
