Joint SHARE User Conference and Budapest Pension Seminar

Budapest, Hungary, 19-20 September 2019
Hungarian State Treasury Social Security Headquarters in Budapest (1081 Budapest Fiumei út 19/a)

The Survey of Health, Ageing, and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) will hold its 6th User Conference jointly with the Budapest Pension Seminar in Budapest, Hungary, on 19-20 September 2019. The conference theme is

Understanding Ageing Societies.

Demographic change is and will remain to be one of the major challenges for European societies. The SHARE survey data is a unique tool to explore, describe and understand ageing and the lives of people in ageing societies from an international perspective and by involving researchers from different scientific fields.

We invited papers using SHARE data on all research areas covered in SHARE, ranging from Health, to Work and Retirement, Pensions, Income and Wealth, Health care, Family and Social Networks, to Survey Methodology. We explicitly invite contributions that make use of the longitudinal dimension of the SHARE data, combine SHARE data with data from an associated study (ELSA, HRS, JSTAR, CHARLS, etc.), or highlight recent findings of SHARE. The joint conference aims at bringing SHARE users from multiple disciplines and countries together to discuss ongoing research projects.

Registration is open until 30 June 2019. We also invite participants without accepted presentation to register as long as capacity limits allow it. There will be no conference fee; however, travel and accommodation should be covered by the participants themselves.
