The Copenhagen Education Network (CEN) is a group of economic researchers interested in education. The purpose is to provide a venue for economists focusing on education in their research, to present research papers and exchange ideas. Read more about CEN here.

The project “The socio-economic importance of research-based education” studies the skills of university graduates improve because they were taught by researchers?
