The BeNA Labor Economics Workshop took place on November 12, 2021 at DIW Berlin. The one-day workshop provided young labor economists the opportunity to present and discuss their current research with other participants and senior researchers.
This year’s keynotes were be given by Markus Nagler (Assistant Professor at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg) and Boris Hirsch (Professor at Leuphana University of Lüneburg). The workshop was marked by vivid discussions during the day and included an informal dinner after the workshop.
Björn Fischer (DIW Berlin) was awarded the BeNA Innovative Research Award for the best contribution to the workshop. In his project, he develops a comprehensive life-cycle model of elder parent care and work to evaluate options that address pressing conflicts between pension and long-term care (LTC) policy.
