«The formation of human capital, essential for economic growth, does not depend exclusively on the formal education system aimed at young people. Lifelong learning and, in particular, continuous training and training for the unemployed, is a factor that has been identified as crucial, for example in PIAAC (OECD), in defining the competences of the adult population. These competences generate, in turn, a wide range of monetary and non-monetary benefits for individuals and societies. In this context, the workshop aims at analysing a diversity of aspects related to lifelong learning, as its distribution, barriers to access, efficiency in production, funding and evaluation of its policies and programs.
The V Workshop on Economics of Education will take place in the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Barcelona on the 16th and 17th September 2014.
The keynotes speakers will be:
Giorgio Brunello (Università degli Studi di Padova, LUMS and IZA)
Francis Green (Institute of Education-University of London)
We look forward to seeing you at the Workshop!
