Third Conference on Non-Cognitive Skills: Acquisition and Economic Consequences
For the third 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 DBBI” 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, self-regulation) in the modern economy. The discussions will shed also some light on the priorities of education policy.
