3rd International Conference on Transitions
in Youth, Young Adulthood and Beyond

29/30 September 2017
University of Bern, Switzerland
TREE Panel Survey (Transitions from Education to Employment)

In cooperation with the University of Bern, TREE (Transitions from Education to Employment) cordially invites you to its 3rd International Conference. The planned conference is conceived as a platform for scientific exchange among researchers working with longitudinal data in the fields of youth and young adulthood, school-to-work and other relevant biographical transitions as well as life course research in general. Topical fields include

  • school-to-work transitions;
  • further transitional dimensions such as leaving the parental home and family formation, health issues, values and attitudes, well-being and satisfaction;
  • cross-domain effects between the school-to-work dimension and other dimensions of transition;
  • comparative research
  • impact of cognitive skills on the life course
     

The conference comprises around 60 contributions, covering a wide range of disciplines and based on nearly 30 different, mostly longitudinal datasets from more than a dozen countries around the world. A preliminary conference programme, including keynotes by Prof Dr Ingrid Schoon (UCL Institute of Education in London) and by Prof Dr Christian Imdorf (University of Basel, Switzerland) is now available:
