Building a fairer Europe and strengthening the EU’s social dimension has become a key priority for the Von der Leyen Commission, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Monitoring the evolution of the social situation by tracking trends, performances and analysing data on poverty, vulnerability and living conditions is crucial to achieve social goals.
Against this background, the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) is organising the Winter School on Data for Monitoring Poverty and Vulnerabilities in Europe in the framework of the InGRID-2 project.
The School will provide an overview on: i) data availability at EU level for monitoring poverty, vulnerability and living standards, ii) how such data are being and can be used for research and policy, and iii) the main findings from ongoing research. It will give the opportunity to the participants to delve on data on different aspects of poverty and present their own research during an online presentation session.
CEPs will host this Winter School in collaboration with leading experts in the field as well as policy makers. They will guide participants across the different topics through keynote speeches, lectures, hands-on workshops on specific case studies and data visualization.
This Winter School is the first out of two organised by CEPS under the Poverty and Living Conditions Pillar of InGRID-2. It targets advanced graduate students, early-stage researchers, PhD students and policy makers.
Participants are expected to have a strong background in quantitative research methods and statistical analysis. Selected participants are expected to share knowledge, participate actively in debates, present their research and give feedback to other participants.
