ZEW/CEE Fourth Conference on Non-Cognitive Skills: Acquisition and Economic Consequences

For the fourth time the research network 'Non-Cognitive Skills: Acquisition and Economic Consequences' which is funded by the Leibniz Association within the 'Pakt für Forschung und Innovation 2008' is pleased to announce a conference on 'Non-Cognitive Skills'. The network consists of a co-operation of economic and psychological expertise of leading European research institutions, the research group of James Heckman at the Economic Research Center, Chicago and the Baden- Württemberg employer association Südwest metall including its educational institutions. In the conference we plan to discuss theories and research methods from different disciplines in order to study non-cognitive skills (such as motivation, persistence, elf-regulation) in the modern economy. The discussions will shed also some light on the priorities of education policy.
