--Deadline Extended--

(1 June 2023)

In research, policy, and practice, new types of data are necessary for identifying obstacles to child well-being. Longitudinal and cohort data, in particular, can help us better understand how early-life conditions and experiences impact later outcomes, informing the development of effective policies and interventions for child and family well-being. This interactive workshop, organized as part of a larger initiative involving the COORDINATE and the GUIDE/EuroCohort projects (PI: Prof. Gary Pollock, Manchester Metropolitan University), provides a valuable opportunity for networking with experts, fostering collaboration, and enhancing learning. Join us to explore the benefits of life course research and longitudinal data for understanding family dynamics and enhancing child well-being, while also building and strengthening professional connections in the field.

Key workshop highlights include:

  • Life course perspective: Explore the complex links between life course events and their effects on individuals, families, and society. Discover how early-life circumstances shape opportunities, constraints, and outcomes across the lifespan and generations.
  • Longitudinal data: Learn about panel surveys, cohort studies, and record linkages to understand family dynamics and child well-being. Engage in interactive discussions with diverse stakeholders, enriching your work and fostering collaboration.
  • Real-world applications: Discuss how longitudinal data can inform decision-making and policy changes and foster equal opportunities for children and families. Exchange ideas on integrating these insights into your organization’s initiatives.

Participating in this workshop offers a unique opportunity for valuable networking, enabling you to expand your knowledge and collaborate with experts in the field of child and family well-being. Don’t miss out on this chance to engage with professionals and broaden your expertise in the field.
