We are pleased to announce the 4th Potsdam PhD Workshop in Empirical Economics. This year’s workshop is organized as a Summer School with a special focus on “Effects and Evaluation of Minimum Wages”. It is part of the Leibniz research project EVA-MIN (see below). The aim of the lectures is to discuss theoretical effects, evaluation approaches, and existing empirical evidence on minimum wages. Talented and interested young researchers will have the opportunity to present and discuss their own research in Empirical Economics (related to minimum wages or any other empirical topic) in poster sessions.
Gerard van den Berg (University of Mannheim) and Stephen Machin (University College London)
The 4th Potsdam PhD Workshop in Empirical Economics is open to around 25 graduate students and post doctorates within three years after dissertation. We encourage all young researchers interested in Empirical Economics to apply.
Please submit your CV and a paper (or an extended abstract) by April 30, 2015 to workshopuempwifo.uni-potsdampde
There will be no workshop fees; travel and accommodation expenses have to be covered by the participants.
The Leibniz research project EVA-MIN is jointly conducted by SOEP, IAB Nuremberg, and University of Potsdam and aims to comprehensively evaluate the effects of the 2015 minimum wage introduction in Germany. As part of the project, the SOEP and IAB data infrastructure will be extended and made available for use by interested researchers worldwide. Workshop participants will be introduced to the new EVA-MIN data infrastructure and its access possibilities in order to stimulate future research. More information on EVA-MIN can be found here: eva-min.soep.de.
Thanks to all participants for an inspiring and interesting "4th Potsdam PhD Workshop in Empirical Economics/EVA-MIN Summer School".
A special thanks to the lecturers Stephen Machin and Gerard van den Berg for sharing their expertise.
We are looking forward to the next event in 2017.
