The Jean Monnet Chair SAMPLEU in close collaboration with the Consortium MAKSWELL (MAKing Sustainable development and WELL-being frameworks work for policy analysis) is organising the Workshop on“Small Area Methods and living conditions indicators in European poverty studies in the era of data deluge and Big data” – Pisa, 8-10 May 2018.
The workshop also hosts the Makswell reflection event on “Future research needs in terms of statistical methodologies and new data”.>
The workshop aims to explore how current scientific advances on studying and monitoring of poverty and living conditions in various dimensions are linked in order to support EU regional policies.
Bring together the most up-to-date knowledge in the field of multidimensional aspects of poverty, the Small Area Estimation methods, the PPPs (Purchase Power Parities) and living conditions in EU.
Establish the dialogue between policy and research to provide scientific advice and support for regional policies combating poverty and in favor of social cohesion.
Provide guidance to the scientific community on the knowledge and tools needed to support current and future monitoring of Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2030.
Identify the constituents for measuring the poverty and living conditions at various scales (local, regional, national, international) towards establishing the necessary indicators and tools for comparisons.
Establish a long-standing partnership among the key actors in the area of studying poverty and living conditions at local level involving researchers, policy makers, official statisticians and young scholars involved in courses on the subject.
Contribute to the continuous development of statistical culture and knowledge that fit into the assessment framework for monitoring poverty in EU and consequently develop the respective training curricula of European studies on poverty and living conditions.
Reflect on the future research needs in terms of statistical methodologies and new data and contribute to define future pathways for the new EU Framework Programme
