The BeNA Summer Workshop took place on May 14, 2018 at DIW. Five young labor economists used the chance to present and discuss their recent research with workshop’s participants and network members. Tommaso Frattini (University of Milan) was our excellent guest speaker at the workshop. The workshop was accompanied by discussions during the coffee breaks and an informal dinner after the workshop.

Maximilian Bach (DIW and Humboldt University) was awarded with the BeNA Innovative Research Award for the best contributed project to the workshop. His project “Teacher incentives and grade retention” provides a simple framework to test whether teachers strategically retain students in the first grade of primary school in order to minimize the number of students in their class for grades 2-4.
We would like to express our thanks to all participants, the workshop organizers, as well as the DIW for hosting the event.
