UK LIS Satellite Office

The UK LIS Satellite Office at the International Inequalities Institute (III) is located at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and coordinated by Dr. Nora Waitkus. The satellite office was launched on the 6th of December 2021. The main aim of the office is to promote the usage of the LIS Databases in the UK and elsewhere, and to serve as the reference point for the liaison between LIS and the community of LIS data users in the UK. The satellite office is composed of the following scholars:

  • Professor Frank Cowell (Department of Economics, STICERD and III)
  • Professor Francisco Ferreira (III and Department of Social Policy)
  • Professor Stephen Jenkins (Department of Social Policy and III)
  • Dr. Nora Waitkus (III)

Pilot set-up of LIS Virtual Desktop at the UK LIS Satellite Office

A part of this collaboration foresees the pilot set-up of a LIS Virtual Desktop that is intended to allow III-affiliated researchers to carry out analysis directly on the LIS databases from a secured room at LSE. The LIS Virtual Desktop is an important channel to increase the usage of the LIS databases.
The access will be strictly limited to students and researchers who are already registered as LISSY users and who have undergone a formal approval process, where a joint committee composed by LIS and III staff decides upon the appropriateness of the access on the basis of a brief description of the researcher and the research.

The application form is available here and should be submitted to
