Applications to the LIS Introductory Workshop, 21-26 May 2023 are Now Open!

LIS is excited to announce that the application to its annual introductory workshop is now open. This year’s workshop marks the 31st edition after the first workshop took place in 1988. For the fourth time, LIS, the University of Luxembourg and LISER will jointly organize and teach the workshop on “Comparative Inequality Measurement using the LIS & LWS Databases”. This workshop is a one-week intensive course designed to introduce researchers in the social sciences to comparative research on income and wealth distribution, employment and social policy, using the harmonised Luxembourg Income Study (LIS) and Luxembourg Wealth Study (LWS) Databases.

This year, the workshop coincides with the celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the LIS creation. Therefore, all the workshop students will get the opportunity to attend the Anniversary Lecture by Sir Richard Blundell, University College London on “The Measurement and the Modelling of Consumption: Progress and Prospects (in Economics and other Social Sciences)” on the 25th of May and the LIS 40th anniversary conference on the 26th of May.

The Workshop will be held at the University of Luxembourg, Belval Campus, Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg from 21-26 of May 2023.
