IIASA in collaboration with ADRI and the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital (IIASA, VID/ÖAW, WU) is hosting the first Asian summer school on how demographic trends and improving educational attainment impact on economic growth around the Asia region. This will also include discussions about the so-called first and second Demographic Dividends and on the role of human capital as a determinant of economic development. Leading international scholars from the US, Europe and Asia will give lectures providing overviews of the state of knowledge in these fields.
Participants in the summer school will typically be pre-docs or recent PhDs. Applications will be considered from around the world. The number of participants is limited to 20. Acceptance is highly competitive. A number of participants will receive bursaries for travel and living expenses in Shanghai (upon request). There is no tuition charge.
