Workshop on Health, Public Policies & Welfare

LISER, through its Living Conditions department, is organizing a workshop on Health, Public Policies and Welfare, which will be held on July 12, 2019. This workshop groups several presentations on health and family economics. Two invited speakers, Raquel Fonseca (UQAM) and Philippe De Donder (TSE) will discuss topics at the frontier of the research on Health Policies. Their interventions will be followed by further presentations of LISER researchers on the link between education and health, family and access to childcare. This event will be a good opportunity to foster collaboration and exchange ideas on these topics with high potential for research and societal impact in Luxembourg and other EU countries.
