September 6th and 7th, 2018
The purpose of the Workshop is to focus on specific challenges around measuring performance in the education, health and other public services sectors. It aims to bring together scholars from various disciplines and fields to debate the present and future challenges in the area of public sector efficiency, performance measurement, and policy and managerial implications of the on-going research. The Workshop provides an ideal platform for presenting new methods, applications of existing techniques, and advances in theoretical and empirical research.
The Workshop is the sixth of a series of academic meetings focused on efficiency analysis in education, the previous ones being hosted in Greece (Thessaloniki) – 2013, United Kingdom (London) – 2014, Belgium (Leuven) – 2015, Milan (Italy) in 2016, and Budapest (Hungary) in 2017. The 2018 workshop explicitly aims to expand the horizon by bringing together theoretical and empirical studies that are not only focused on efficiency analysis in education but also health and other public services, and linking with the broader area of measuring performance within the public sector.
