NEPS Conferences

The regularly conducted NEPS Conferences bring together national and international researchers from different disciplines and at different stages of their academic career to discuss ongoing projects and current findings based on data of the National Educational Panel Study. A particular focus of these conferences is on the promotion of young researchers and the exchange between NEPS data users and NEPS project staff.
