III LABORatorio R. Revelli Biannual Workshop on

Health, Retirement, Mismatch and Data for Policy Evaluation

Call for Papers and Posters

The LABORatorio R. Revelli – Center for Employment Studies, is pleased to announce its third biannual workshop, jointly organized with the Competence Center on Microeconomic Evaluation (CC-ME) at Unit S.3 of the Joint Research Center of the European Commission and with the Epidemiology Unit of Piedmont Region. The workshop stems from the LABORatorio’s twenty-year experience in the study of labor market dynamics and aims to promote the exchange of research ideas among the scientific community.

The workshop will propose two thematic sessions on “The effect of retirement policies on health, informal caring and access to social welfare programs” and on “Educational and skill mismatch”, for which a call for papers and posters is open (details below). Agar Brugiavini (Ca’ Foscari University of Venice), Giovanni Russo (CEDEFOP) and Paolo Vineis (Imperial College of London) will give the keynote speeches. Also, the workshop will host the presentation of the results from the project The health equity impact of increasing age of retirement: the contribution of Italian longitudinal studies funded by the Italian Ministry of Health (RF-2016-02364270) and a roundtable on the Use of administrative data for policy evaluation introduced by Paolo Paruolo (Joint Research Center of the European Commission).

Please submit extended abstracts or – preferably – full papers in pdf format to labor@laboratoriorevelli.it by September 30th, 2023 indicating which thematic session you are applying for and if you prefer a paper or poster presentation; in case of overcrowding of accepted paper presentations, some will be randomly assigned to the poster session. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by midOctober, 2023. Participation is free of charge, while travel expenses and the social dinner will not be covered. Submissions by young researchers are particularly welcome. A 500 Euro prize in the name of Riccardo Revelli – a pioneer in the use of administrative data for labor market analysis – will be awarded to the best contribution (either poster or paper) by a young researcher (details below).

Patronage from the Department of Economics and Statistics “Cognetti de Martiis” of the University of Torino is gratefully acknowledged. The workshop will take place at Collegio Carlo Alberto, Torino, Italy, which is kindly greeted for hosting the event. An on-line channel will be open for the public, while presenters are requested to attend in presence.
