Albert Sabater participates in the workshop “Longitudinal Studies and its Application in Social Policy” on 7-8 March in Brasilia, Brazil.

The workshop was organised by the Newton Fund, the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq), and the Ministry of Development and Fight Against Hunger of Brazil. The main purposes of the workshop were:

  • To build and share information and expertise in longitudinal studies in the UK and Brazil and stimulate interdisciplinary research across the major longitudinal studies
  • To explore current longitudinal data resources and research in the UK and Brazil and raise awareness of each other’s communities (‘learning and sharing’)
  • To discuss the application of longitudinal studies to research challenges (Education, Income, Labour and Youth and Inequalities)
  • To discuss ethical and legal implications of the use of Longitudinal Studies
  • To create networking opportunities between UK and Brazilian researchers
  • To identify possible areas for future collaboration and development
