YouthLife Workshop: Quantitative Data Analysis and Networking

Webinars via ZOOM

March 24th-25th, 2022

From Thursday, 24th March 2022 to Friday, 25th March 2022, an interdisciplinary workshop on Quantitative Data Analysis and Networking is organised by the University of Bamberg in cooperation with the Institute of International and Social Studies at Tallinn University via ZOOM.

At this two-day international workshop, YouthLife project will bring together quantitative researchers (both early stage and senior researchers) from various disciplines (e.g., sociology, demography) from YouthLife Partner institutions (Tallinn University, University of Bamberg, University of Southampton and Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute) and from other institutions prominent in life course research of youth transitions. The workshop is planned for paper presentations and discussion, but it also aims to broaden the research networks and facilitate further research collaborations among scholars from the four partners and beyond.

Each presenter will give a talk on his/her work (in progress) in the field of quantitative data analysis, which will be followed by a discussion. The contributions cover a broad range of topics such as youth transitions, education, work, family, life satisfaction at different stages of life cycle and the impact of COVID-19 to it, gender, and life course research in general. 

Please register your participation HERE latest by 22.03.2022 and you will be sent the ZOOM link a day before the event.
