The National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) provides a unique research data infrastructure with longitudinal and context information for respondents of six ongoing panel cohorts and two finalized school reform studies. The database particularly facilitates empirical analyses of competence development, educational processes, educational decisions, and returns to education in formal, nonformal, and informal contexts. For more information, please see www.neps-data.de.
The series of NEPS Conferences brings together scientists from different disciplines and at different stages of their academic career to discuss ongoing projects and current findings in educational research. Empirical contributions on all NEPS-related topics are welcome, including methodological issues and international comparisons. The conference is held at the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories in Bamberg. Conference language is English.
The focus of this year’s conference is on the intergenerational transmission of inequalities with a keynote lecture by Dr. Sebastian T. Braun (University of St. Andrews, UK). The program features symposia, paper presentations, and a poster session. An award ceremony for the best NEPS publication and a round table with staff of the Research Data Center complete the agenda.
