Eduworks summer school 2014, detailed programme

  1. 1. Summer School 2014 Programme Sopron, Hungary
  2. 2. eduworks-network.eu facebook.com/eduworksnetwork @EduworksNetwork This project has been funded with support from the European Commission. This communication reflects the views only of the author, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein. 2 Preface In the Summer of 2013 the great news was received that our EDUWORKS proposal for the European Marie Curie grants was funded. One year later, I am proud to announce the first EDUWORKS Summer School, to be held in Sopron, Hungary, between 13th and 20th of July. The Summer School will challenge the aims of the EDUWORKS project, “Crossing borders in the comprehensive investigation of labour market matching processes: An EU-wide, trans-disciplinary, multilevel and science-practice- bridging training network”. The objective of EDUWORKS is to train talented early-stage researchers in the socio-economic and psychological dynamics of labour supply and demand matching processes at aggregated and disaggregated levels. Recent technological innovations have challenged the research of matching processes and have opened totally new perspectives regarding data collection and analysis. Semantic matching technologies combined with widely available information about vacancies, cv’s, task descriptions, job requirements, and alike indicate that the project is on the edge of new developments. The first Summer School will play a major role in coping with these challenges and so will the Summer Schools in the coming years. The six partners in EDUWORKS are the Central European University, Corvinno Technology Transfer Center, Trinity College of Dublin, University of Amsterdam, University of Salamanca, and University of Siegen. The job advertisements for young researchers in these universities and centers attracted a lot of attention from the community and high quality submissions from inside and outside Europe were received. At the time of writing, the selection processes had resulted in a marvelous team of 14 young researchers. These researchers and their supervisors will attend the Summer School, and I hope that all will find the School interesting and fun. I also hope that the School will create such a fruitful academic atmosphere that in the years to come, EDUWORKS will become a platform for dialogue and interaction on new concepts and applications for labour market matching. The organisation of the Summer School was a team effort of all EDUWORKS partners. Yet, I would like to thank particularly my colleagues in the Board of Management, Dr. Stefan Mol, Dr. Gábor Kismihók, Gergely Wischy and Ad Gielen, who worked extremely hard to get things done on time.

The demographics of an aging population and a lower birth-rate in most European countries, means that fewer have to provide for more. Due to a longer life-expectancy, the retirement age is increasing and employees will have to perform well in a job for a longer period of time. Fewer able and skilled employees and disparities in unemployment figures throughout Europe, combined with open labour markets, will most certainly initiate labour migrations whereby skilled workers who cannot be found within some countries will migrate from countries with a surplus. The war on talent in one country will cause a brain-drain in another. In order to determine the skills of the migrating worker the mere comparison of educational level is not enough. Is the doctor educated in Italy as good as his colleague in Denmark? Perhaps so, but what about the civil engineer, or the IT-specialist? In the corporate world competency management has long been seen a solution to this problem, but in practice it has drawbacks. What then can be used as a communal language to compare skills? Work-roles? Job knowledge? If so, where do we stand and how can they help us in achieving this quest. Alec W. Serlie is assistant professor at the department of Work & Organizational Psychology at Erasmus University Rotterdam. He is also Research Director at GITP, one of the largest HRM-consultancy firms of the Netherlands. Educated as a cognitive and medical psychologist, he has extensive experience both in psychological and organizational consultancy. His work is mainly focused on developing new practical tools, for recruitment, selection and training purposes. This is achieved not only by applying traditional psychometric measures, such as questionnaires, but also by using modern methods, such as SJT’s and serious games. His recent research focusses on the notion of Corporate Personality and the fit between individuals and the organization which they work in. Furthermore, his line of research is focused on the use of Social Media in selection-setting. Previous research, together with fellow-researchers, has been on a general personality factor, validity of new selection methods, video resumes and the Dark Side of Psychology.

Secondary objectives: To compare the occupational approach to skills-wage mismatch to other approaches To evaluate the impact of the crisis in the gender mismatch gap To evaluate the differential impact of the crisis for different age profiles Despite having suffered a similar economic blow with the 2008 crisis (similar impact on GDP, similar inflated construction sector, etc.), the employment effects of the crisis in Spain and the UK have been radically different, with massive employment destruction in Spain and hardly any employment effect in the UK. This makes them very interesting cases for a comparative analysis of the impact of the crisis on skills mismatch. A secondary objective of the paper will be to explore the impact of the different policy trajectories (looser monetary policy in UK, drastic initial devaluation, monetary sovereignty, etc.) on skills mismatch and human capital underutilization. Raquel Sebastián Lago, a Spanish citizen, holds a double bachelor degree in Economics and Journalism from Carlos III University and a Master Research in Business and Quantitative Methods from Carlos III University, where she specialised in personnel economics. During her studies, she spent a semester at TEC de Monterrey (Mexico). She is currently pursuing a PhD in Labour Economics at Salamanca University, as Marie Curie ITN fellow. Before joining EDUWORKS, Raquel worked as Research Assistant in the Policy and Programme Support Unit (PPSU) of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Brussels. She also has worked for the Human Resource Unit of DG ECFIN (European Commission), Junior Internal Controller at Banco Santander in Turin (Italy), and Magdala Foundation, a microcredit company in Dar el Salaam (Tanzania), where she was Research Assistant. During her studies, she also worked as a Teaching Assistant at Carlos III University in Madrid.

Over a considerable time, various issues related to measuring skills- occupation mismatch have been given importance in the literature. This study discusses the methodological difficulties involved in measuring mismatch and looking at the factors causing the mismatch. Then the analysis is carried out at the job level, i.e., instead of taking individual as a unit of analysis, job will be considered as a unit. The datasets I propose to use in this study come from European Labour Force Survey and Structure of Earnings Survey. In the first step of analysis I calculate mismatch for each job (combination of sector and occupation) using two approaches – job analysis (JA) approach and realized matching (RM) approach. In JA approach, each ISCO one digit occupation category is assigned a particular education level as the required level of education to perform the job. However, according to RM approach the required level of education is determined statistically by the mode level of education within a job. The difference between required and actual level of education defines mismatch in both the cases. Sudipa Sarkar is a PhD student in Labour Economics at the Department of Applied Economics, University of Salamanca. She has joined the PhD programme as a Marie Curie ITN Fellow under the Eduworks project. She has an MA in Economics from Rabindra Bharati University, India. Previously, Sudipa has worked at several research organisations like Young Lives (an international research study led by a department in University of Oxford), Indian Statistical Institute, and Institute of Rural Management Anand. Her research areas have been related to economics of education, occupational changes, returns to education and informal employment, and multidimensional childhood deprivation.

We want to further explore this divergence by studying local labor markets in the UK using data from the UKCES Employer Skills Surveys. First, we observe that local labor markets appear to be heterogeneous in terms of ‘tightness’ (i.e. the vacancy-unemployment ratio) and that the degree of heterogeneity (i.e. dispersion of the v-u ratio) has increased in the last decade. Traditional search and matching models predict that the job filling rate (JFR) depends upon tightness and that tight markets (high v/u) show lower JFRs. Our very preliminary analysis linking overall local labor market conditions with firm’s self-reported difficulty of filling vacancies shows two interesting phenomena: (i) tight labor markets coexisting with low hard- to-fill vacancies (HTFVs) incidence and (ii) slack labor markets (low v/u) coexisting with high HTFVs incidence. At first glance, this might seem at odds with the predictions of traditional macro models, as long as we assume that self-reported HTFVs incidence is an unbiased proxy of the JFR in a local labor market. It may also represent a first piece of evidence pointing to other factors mediating the relationship between tightness and the JFR. In the last years little attention has been given to the processes through which firms come to experience long-term unfilled or hard-to-fill vacancies, in different local labor markets. This has opened a gap in our understanding of how local labor demand and supply factors relate to firm-level indicators of mismatch, once firm heterogeneity and exogenous aggregate economic conditions are controlled for. Mariano Mamertino, an Italian citizen, holds a B.Sc. of Economics and a M.Sc. in Economic and Social Sciences from Bocconi University. During his studies he also spent two semesters abroad at Boston University (USA) and University of Victoria (Canada). He is currently pursuing a PhD in Public Policy at Central European University, in Budapest, as a Marie Curie ITN Fellow. Before joining CEU and EDUWORKS, he worked as a junior research officer in the Research Department of the International Labour Organization in Geneva. His previous professional experiences also include working as a market analyst at GfK in Milan and as a research intern in the Trade Policy Section of the United Nations ESCAP in Bangkok. During his studies, he also worked as a research assistant at Bocconi University in Milan.

Ulceluse (Central European University): Workers' responsiveness to labor market shortages: gender, age and ethnicity Abstract: High and persistent skills mismatch is costly for employers, workers and society at large. It is estimated that the average incidence of overqualification in a sample of European economies in 2010 was 10.1 per cent, while underqualification averaged 28.1 per cent. Because the allocation of workers across jobs is rarely optimal due to labour market failures and imperfect information, workers will adjust to the new conditions by altering their job-seeking behaviour. Understanding how they react to the various labor shortages becomes thus an essential stage in the process of producing sound policies that will reduce labour market inefficiencies. Magdalena M. Ulceluse is a Phd candidate in Labour Economics and Policy at the Doctoral School of Political Science, Public Policy, and International Relations, Central European University. She finished her B.Sc. in Economics from the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration in Timisoara, Romania and went on to gain a M. Sc. in Public Policy and Human Development from the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance in the Netherlands. She has previously worked on projects for the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the European Commission, CEDEFOP and ISFOL, among others.

I am an applied economist with a degree in International Economics and a PhD in Applied Economics. My past research was focused around the internationalisation processes of services activities. I than moved my attention toward labour market issues, since I studied the characteristics of some specific health-related occupations workers. The aspect that brings together these different research fields is my passion for data analysis which is also at the base of my present and future research agenda. It revolves around the empirical analysis of different aspects of the labour demand and supply matching. As examples I present some insights on a recent study on the skill mismatch the affects the migrant population and a research project focusing on the work tasks implemented in different occupations. The data source of my present and future research is the web-survey linked to the WageIndicator web page. Stefano Visintin is a post-doc Marie Curie Fellow at AIAS, Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Labour Studies, University of Amsterdam. Before joining AIAS he had been working as researcher at IESE Business School and as associate professor at Nebrija University, both in Madrid. He holds a PhD in Applied Economics awarded by the Universidad de Alcalá, Spian and a BA in Economics from the Università degli Studi di Trieste, Italy. He is an applied economist who enjoys large dataset analysis and has a great interested for all tools that make these sort of analysis possible. In particular, he presently researches the dynamics of the labour supply and demand matching processes starting from survey data. In the past he conducted research in international trade and on the internationalisation processes of services activities.

Job knowledge refers to the set of facts, concepts, principles and other types of information (Dye, Reck & McDaniel, 1993) that have been recognized as crucial in order to perform successfully in a particular job (Schmidt, Hunter & Outerbridge, 1986; Hunter, 1986). Our prime concern would be to look into the conditions under which job knowledge based training leads to increase in job knowledge and in consequence, to better job performance. In line with that, we would investigate if job knowledge training leads not only to job knowledge acquisition but to its application in organizational context (training transfer). The special focus would be on contextual factors, namely job and organization related, which either stimulate or inhibit training transfer. Due to the changing nature of work, growing diversity, complexity and complicatedness of the tasks that are embedded in one’s job, investigating processes involved in workplace learning and knowledge development, as well as providing applicative insights for training customizations becomes important. In order to empirically investigate the process of assessment and development of job knowledge requested to fit into certain job position, specific e-learning, ontology based platforms will be applied and evaluated. The research would encompass several empirical studies, combining both quantitative and qualitative methodological approaches with special attention being put to the application of big data and experimental investigation. Sofija Pajic is a PhD Candidate within the group of Human Resources Management and Organizational Behaviour in the Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Amsterdam. She started her appointment at UvA as a Marie Curie ITN fellow within EDUWORKS project. She graduated in Work, Organizational and Personnel psychology at University of Bologna and University of Coimbra. Before that, she received degree in psychology from University of Belgrade. Her research interests are mainly in investigating the potential of job knowledge for stimulating person-job fit, especially in the area of training and development.

Several individual’s dispositional characteristics have shown to be closely related to- and predictive for training effectiveness via the acquisition of job related knowledge and the subsequent transfer on job performance, for instance: general cognitive ability, self-efficacy, personality traits, and locus of control, job/career attitudes and goal orientation. The motivation to transfer (i.e. “trainees’ desire to use the knowledge and skills mastered in the training program on the job”, Noe, 1986) has been studied extensively across many disciplinary fields by stressing the importance of factors that might support or hinder it. Recently, however, new trends in the changing nature of work and work-force composition, have considerably broadened the field, by stimulating new interest in how motivation and learning in training affect work behaviors, work attitudes, job performance and career success. The aim of this project is to better understand when, how and why the job related training and the acquisition of job knowledge are likely to be effective on the workers’ job performance, thereby providing added value to the organizations. The adopted research approach fulfills the need to investigate the learning processes on a micro-level: many years of scientific contributions support the belief that it is clearly critical to examine individual differences in developing, designing and implementing any training process or educational system. As Gully and Chen (2009, p.49) mention: “Individual differences matter and they interact with training features and the broader environment to affect outcomes. (…) People are complex, and training is made more complex by virtue of their involvement. Our theories and practices should reflect this reality”. Eloisa Federici is a PhD Candidate at the Human Resource Management and Organizational Behavior group of the Faculty of Economics and Business of the Universiteit van Amsterdam. Her PhD project is part of the broader EU Eduworks Project and aims to investigate the role of job knowledge in fitting individuals to jobs, both in training and personnel selection context. She obtained her Bachelor degree in Communication and Marketing Psychology and her Master degree in Work and Organizational Psychology at the Sapienza University of Rome, where she also worked as a trainee in the laboratory of Psychometry.

This is what job analysis is all about: gaining understanding of the activities and requirements that comprise a work assignment. With its origins in the Industrial Revolution, changes in the nature of work have made the underlying assumptions of job analysis obsolete. Jobs cannot be considered static entities anymore with the observations that individuals find themselves in constantly evolving jobs and are actively crafting their own jobs. Contemporary jobs are organized around teamwork and are far from standardized with computerization emphasizing on performing social and creative tasks in idiosyncratic ways. However, job analysis has not become redundant. It is critical for many human resource practices and with the rise of evidence-based management the need for accurate job information is bigger than ever. So far there have been some answers to the call for change with the developments of strategic job analysis, work analysis, and competency modelling. These innovations, however, have been criticized for their less rigorous methods; measuring accuracy instead of inferential quality, using holistic instead of decomposed ratings, and focusing on less specific and observable job descriptors. A possibility to address these shortcomings has occurred with the rise of big data. While technology has made collecting, storing, and maintaining large amounts of data easier and big data offers a vast amount of untapped rich sources of job data, the job analysis methods have remained untouched by modern technology. In order to change this, I aim to provide the theoretical underpinnings and methods for advancements in the field of job analysis with the use of big data. The design includes four studies: 1) Literature study to create a taxonomy and evaluate the different job information types in order to provide an appropriate language for job analysis 2) Empirical study in which big data is applied to job analysis combined with validation studies 3) Empirical study to assess the language people use to talk about jobs and how this is impacted by the changing nature of work 4) Empirical study to show how job analysis information can be applied to bridge the work-education gap. Hannah Berkers has a degree in Business Studies with a specialization in Human Resource Management and Organizational Behavior from the University of Amsterdam. Here, she also received her degree in Economics and Business. She is currently working at the Amsterdam Business School as a PhD candidate and is part of the OntoTech project of the Center of Job Knowledge Research. She has done research in knowledge sharing and leadership in project-based organizations and is now focusing on job analysis and the role of job knowledge in this process. She is interested in linking these results to the educational system in order to ensure a better fit with the job market. Before working as a PhD candidate, she was a lecturer at the Nyenrode New Business School and the University of Amsterdam.

Nowadays, people carry mobile devices with them most of the time and learning can happen at hours and in places that were not conceived for this aim. Learners are now able to set up their own learning environments and embed them into their day-to-day activities. This paradigm of almost ubiquitous learning presents both opportunities and challenges. On the one hand, learners outside the classroom can take full advantage of a far wider range of digital resources and ways of learning. On the other hand, without the structure provided in traditional learning settings, it becomes increasingly difficult to understand the learners trajectories and to ensure that their educational journeys are properly supported. In this talk, I will present our initial plan for identifying the learning transitions that occur when mobile learners travel along and across different dimensions of mobility and for understanding how these transitions are supported by technology. Claudia Orellana-Rodriguez is a Ph.D. student at Trinity College Dublin. She holds a M.Sc. in Internet Technologies and Information Systems from the Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany. She has worked as a research assistant at the L3S Research Center in Hannover, where she was involved in the European projects LivingKnowledge, Cubrik, and EUMSSI. Her research interests include technology-enhanced learning (TEL), social media analytics, sentiment analysis, opinion mining and information and multimedia retrieval.

At a macro level, we transition between education and work, single to married status and from work to retirement. At the micro level, transitions are less well-defined: we are transitioning between home, work and other places, social groups, electronic device usage and activities. But at each point of transition, there are new opportunities for learning (Evans, Schoon & Weale, 2013). In the case of macro- level transitions, this learning is easier to track; however, at the micro level, tracking these lifelong learning opportunities is more difficult. This research project aims to collect and analyse data from technology usage of lifelong learners at the micro level, to identify patterns of lifelong learning and to develop a set of lifelong learning transition metrics based on these patterns. It is hoped that these metrics can then be used to inform the development of technologies and applications that support transitions in lifelong learning. Sean Dowling has worked as both an educational technologist and EFL teacher over the last 15 years in Asia and the Middle East. He has a B.Sc. in Computer Science from University College Dublin and an M.A. in TESOL from the Institute of Education, London. Sean has published widely in both EFL and educational technology publications over the last few years and is currently the series editor for the HCT Educational Technology Series and a member of the editorial board of the UAE Journal of Educational Technology.

Learning has been influenced by this phenomenon. Mobile learning places the learner as the target and recognizes students’ mobility along different dimensions. Moreover, mobile learning enhances the value of informal and self-directed learning as it is recognized mainly outside the classroom and when students have no intention for learning. However these experiences are still connected to formal or non-formal settings, consolidating learning experiences across different settings and connecting different dimensions of mobility. This situation incorporates new learning patterns among students considered lifelong learners. This research project attempts to analyze those patterns in order to provide appropriate learning contexts for lifelong learners in the mobile age. Soledad Castellano-Vizcaino is a PhD Student at Trinity College Dublin. She holds a M.Ed. in eLearning and a M.A. in Leadership and Management in Education from the University of Seville, Spain. During her studies, she has participated in a number of research projects as a research assistant. She also worked as a lecturer at the University of Seville. Her research interests include technology-enhanced learning, lifelong learning, mobile learning, innovation in learning.

This overwhelmingly large data contains hidden knowledge that can be useful for improving organizational strategies. Thus, the need for big data analytics will be of paramount importance. Applications of knowledge discovery techniques allow us to systematically analyze the data and find out hidden relationships among the data. This research which is within the framework of the EDUWORKS project (http://www.uni- siegen.de/ws/projekte/eduworks/index.html?lang=en) has the following broad objectives: investigating the user interface related improvements, investigating data storage related improvements, investigating data and execution related improvements In the envisaged system, data shall be imported from the database of the industry partners of EDUWORKS project in such a way that it suits the implementation of the data warehouse. The data warehouse is the basis for the algorithms to implement extraction of knowledge. The outcomes will be shown on the dashboard and used by researchers and partners.

Abstract: The primary objective of this study is to explore dimensions and relationships in educational-labour market linkage through a data-driven approach. The study will start by determining educational dimensions that predict education outcomes. It will also examine labour market aspects such as analyses of jobs, job demands, and employment information. Finally we hope to link the two analyses (education and labour market) to influence education outcomes that would increase job-person fit and influence the preference of individuals to work continuously. A way by which we can influence education outcomes is to improve curricular of higher education and to create tools that will further enhance the person employability and desire to be employed. Vladimer Kobayashi has a degree in Applied Mathematics (major in operations research) and Data Mining. He has done research in the application of multivariate statistics, signal processing, and development and design of kernel functions. He received training in database management and took courses in advanced database and data warehousing. His main strength is in statistical modeling and data mining and complex system modeling

Only if a person knows his level and gaps of knowledge in education domains, learning could become efficient. Modern computerized tests become increasingly adaptive and efficient, yet they are centering solely on to performance of the learner. The next step of an adaptive testing is to connect further to the personal background of the learner and the learning domain. Here the learner's knowledge and skills are captured in a process of exploration, using the test feedback to navigate on the educational domains and gradually completing a picture of the learner's profile, thus putting the human into the center of his education. Christian Weber is a PhD student at the Corvinno Technology Transfer Center. He holds a M.Sc. in Computer Science in Electrical Engineering Application and graduated from the University of Siegen, Germany, where he worked for the Institute of Knowledge Based Systems and Knowledge Management. He contributed to industry and research cooperations on national and European level and worked for the IT branch of the Elmos Semiconductor AG. He is a member of the organizing committee of the International Conference on Integrated Systems, Design and Technology. 19:00 – Guided Tour in Sopron After the long day we will take a guided tour in Sopron. After the tour we are going to have dinner in one of the most famous restaurant in the city center of Sopron, Jégverem. Sopron has a long history with some walls and foundations dating back to Roman times. A wealth of Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque buildings lend Sopron its charming, small-town look. The main square with the Fire Watch Tower dating back to the 12th century is definitely worth a visit. The city received its nickname as ‘The most loyal town’ when after WWI the locals voted for Sopron to remain a part of Hungary instead of becoming a part of Austria.

UNESCO and other international organisations have identified a set of ethical principles to follow in all research involving human participants. International law has established ‘charters’ – specifically the Declaration of Helsinki – that most countries have signed up to. Most research ethics guidance has developed from medical ethics. This session will be workshop style, participants will consider what being ethical really means and explore what pragmatically happens in implementation of ethics from what has been observed across European states and organisations. Both the latter activities will contribute to an understanding of contexts/environments in which research ethics actually operate. Touching on international relations between organisations when trying to adhere to the same charter. While most researchers see applying for ethical approval for their research as an extra burden this course will highlight the value of doing so. Key issues under each of the guiding principles will be presented and discussed. Dr. Peter Cudd is a Senior Researcher in the School of Health and Related Research, University of Sheffield. He is multi- disciplinarian. After completing his doctorate in high frequency Electrical Engineering he has more than 20 years research experience in health and related research – particularly relating to the user specification and evaluation of electronic technologies in health and social care contexts. His research in this field has for most of that time taken into account the service context – i.e. expertise, roles and behaviours of the people (staff) who typically would have to deliver the new services using the innovations. He has experience of working within the NHS and University settings. He supervises Doctoral and Masters degree students.

You will be asked to apply these considerations to your own proposed thesis and research articles. Materials: You need to select a journal article of your choice that you consider to be well written and which is relevant to your research. You will also need to bring the proposal you were asked to write for this course to the sessions as we will reflect on the issues discussed in the journal articles and then in your own proposal. Outcome: You will be more aware of the expectations that research publication demands and will be able to identify more precisely how writers approach and deal with those expectations. 1 Directing Your Research: We look at issues concerned with ‘Contrastive Rhetoric’, how other languages and English approaches to academic writing differ, the characteristics of 'Good' research and what readers are looking for in journal articles. We will discuss why papers are rejected by journals, considerations in targeting a journal etc. and looking for what journals want as expressed in journal guidelines to writers etc. 2. Introductions to Research Articles: We analyse the structure/s of the introduction to journal articles, discuss readers' expectations, and look at how contribution and originality is identified, and justified and what that involves, and how disciplines differ within their approaches to ‘Introductions’. 3. Literature Reviews: We discuss the effective use of sources, and why we use them, how to make one’s own opinion heard, reviewing the literature and its purposes, differences between disciplines and issues involved with citing and referencing. 4. Macro and Micro-level Argumentation:

Peer Review: This session will give you the chance to become clearer about your peers’ proposed research and how this is presented in their proposal. This session gives you the chance to discuss the strengths and weaknesses in others’ work, and to talk about how you plan to overcome any concerns identified by your readers with regard to your proposed research. 14:00 – Trip around Sopron After the lunch a bus will take us to see some famous location of the region. We will visit Pan- European Picnic monument, take a tour in Eszterházy Palace and have a dinner at Castle Szidónia. The Pan-European Picnic was a peace demonstration held on the Austrian-Hungarian border near the town of Sopron, Hungary on 19 August 1989, an important event during the Revolutions of 1989 that led to the fall of the Iron Curtain and the reunification of Germany. It was organised by the Pan-European Union and the Hungarian opposition Hungarian Democratic Forum under the protection of Otto von Habsburg and Imre Pozsgay. Eszterházy palace in the centre of Fertőd. The magnificent Baroque castle, also known as 'the Hungarian Versailles', was built by Miklós Eszterházy the 'Glorious' between 1763 and 1766. He and his high-spirited wife, Countess Margit Cziráky, rebuilt the 20-room hunting lodge of József Eszterházy, transforming it into the family's favourite residence. This was the golden age of the building, between 1768 and 1790. After the owner’s death, it lost its prominent role and it perished during World War II.

The current research (and funding) climate makes it absolutely necessary that you are successful in being published: "Publish or Perish". This raises the question, how can you achieve that goal? Success essentially depends on three components: 1) The ability to determine the best possible publication strategy for your research findings. 2) The best possible way to write your article. 3) The most effective interaction with editors. Key to success in this context is your ability to put yourself in the position of readers, reviewers and editors. Important considerations in journal selection are a realistic assessment of the quality of the research and of the audience you intend to reach. The art of manuscript writing is not just applying one "golden tip". It is essentially "telling your story" to your readers in an engaging way, and avoiding common mistakes and deficiencies including poor language. Avoidable mistakes can lead to unnecessary rejection of your manuscript. Finally, it is your open, non-defensive attitude towards the editors and the reviewer comments, that will not only increase the likelihood of getting your manuscript accepted for publication, it is also likely that your published paper has improved thanks to their comments. By consistently applying these principles, and by understanding the publishing process and the editors' and reviewers' expectations, you are likely to become a more successful author. Elsevier invites you to an Author Seminar at the summer school in Sopron, Hungary. At the end of this Author Seminar you should master the essentials of good manuscript writing.

(panel discussion) Discussion with Eduworks Supervisors and the speaker from Elsevier about publishing Lei Zhang is academic publisher in Elsevier and responsible for sixteen journals in the field of Economics and Finance. Lei holds a PhD degree in Development Economics from Wageningen University, The Netherlands. 13:30 – 18:30 Researcher Dashboard Workshop The EDUWORKS project aims to provide insight into person-education-job matching in the labour market at different levels of aggregation. The project is aimed at studying three levels, i.e. micro, meso and macro, and applying a complex data repository with an intelligent interface entitled as EDUWORKS Researcher Dashboard (EDUBOARD). The dashboard allows us to interconnect the levels and herewith facilitate collaboration among the various researchers, using a multidisciplinary and cross-linikng approach of HRM, Lifelong Learning, Sociology of Work and Occupations, Labour Economics and Knowledge Management. The EDUWORKS project provides relevant information on empirically grounded matching processes in the labour market, i.e. person, organization and nation related perspectives. EDUBOARD, therefore, is an integral part of the research dealing with data warehousing, integration, reporting, and analysis. The primary objectives of the EDUBOARD are:  Providing access or interfaces (linking) to large-scale data provided by the partners, associated partners and other organizations interested in EDUWORKS.  Integration of the data sources corresponding to the three levels of study to provide insight in the job-person-education matching.  Offering data in a (unified) format that data analytical software can understand and deploy it with a potential for applying knowledge discovery methods.  Deploying emerging technologies for data-warehousing and analysis to sustain the usability of the end-product in a long run.

In the summer school, we commence the first step for „Brainstorming” and „Requirements elicitation”. The schematic overview of the system in Figure 1 shows that the system is divided into three layers – Data Layer, Logic Layer and User Interface Layer – each of which interacts with eachother. The system will be developed through the continuous interaction between the the end-users and the project team, using the best infrastructure available and within the framework of the protocols. Taking into account the multidisciplinary approach of the project, we need to discuss three major issues for initiating the EDUBOARD, as follows:  End-user perspectives on data (existing and potential data sources) o What is „data” in each discipline of EDUWORKS? i.e., what is the unit of analysis and where are the variables. o Types of data (structured or unstructured) o Specification of the existing data-sources  Process to gather data o How to initiate the process? o What are the legal issues and ethical concerns? What procedures need to be implemented to ensure strict legal and ethical compliance (in terms of access right, privacy, need for replication and so forth) o What are the technological and non-technological risks?  Data suppliers  Language issue.  Underlying technology  End-user perspective on researcher dashboard o How do you picture a kind of interface for data-analysis? o How to deal with the accumulated data? (i.e. Data-analysis in micro, meso and macro levels.)
