CfP: Forum on Higher Education and the Labour Market @ Hannover on October 29-30, 2019

The German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies (DZHW) and the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) jointly organize the 2nd Forum on “Higher Education and the Labour Market“ (HELM), which will take place on October 29th and 30th 2019 in Hannover.

This year’s focus topic will be „Different Paths – Different Outcomes? Changes in the Acquisition of the Higher Education Entrance Qualification and Educational Pathways of Graduates“. Under this header we are asking the question, how alternative paths to acquiring a higher education entrance qualification on the one hand and alternative options to continue one’s education afterwards (as e.g. cooperative education programmes) on the other shape the education and career paths of students/degree holders.

In addition to the focus topic we are also interested in contributions that deal with the link between higher education and the labour market in general.

We appreciate empirical contributions from various disciplines, in particular from Economics, the Social Sciences, and Education. Please submit a short abstract (500 words maximum) by June 24th 2019 to
