5th International NEPS Conference

December 7-8, 2020 | LIfBi Bamberg

+++ Participation via video conference possible | Registration now open +++

The National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) provides a unique research data infrastructure with longitudinal and context information for respondents of six ongoing panel cohorts. The rich 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

Due to the ongoing situation caused by the Corona pandemic, we offer the possibility to participate in the event via video conference. Physical presence is not a requirement to take part in the conference.

The NEPS Conferences bring together scientists from different disciplines and at different stages of their academic career to discuss ongoing projects and current findings in educational research. This year the event is hosted for the fifth time by the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi, Bamberg). Empirical contributions on all NEPS-related topics are welcome, including methodological issues and international comparisons. The analyses to be presented do not necessarily have to be based on the NEPS data. Conference language is English.

We are pleased that Michelle Jackson (Assist. Prof. of Sociology at Stanford University, U.S.) has agreed to give a keynote lecture on the benefits of the fundamental causes approach for research on educational inequality.
