The workshop took place on Kirchberg Campus at the University of Luxembourg and brought together a group of 22 international researchers. For two days, they presented and discussed their most recent findings that open new ways of understanding the differential performance of economies.

The event focused on the effects of population ageing as well as on the role of cultural aspects such as norms and values. The keynote lecture was delivered by Matthias Doepke, Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Sciences.

The workshop was funded by the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) (C20/SC/14770002).
