Open Doors at the Center for Child Well-Being and Development, 13.12.2017, 5-6pm

The Center for Child Well-being & Development is a research center at the Department of Economics of the University of Zurich (UZH). It was created to tackle the most pressing questions related to basic opportunities for children in developing countries. As a research body, it addresses various open questions in the field of development economics and program evaluation in Malawi, Ethiopia, Sudan, and Brazil - and it is steadily expanding. With UNICEF and DEZA it has two compelling and resourceful partners, making the center’s work even more relevant for a sustainable impact on children’s lives.

To build capacity, the Center for Child Well-being & Development is constantly looking for energetic support from motivated students to get involved in research activities. Thus, we would like to invite you to our very first student information apéro at the University of Zurich. At this event, you will get the opportunity to see what master students, but also PhD candidates and professors of our chair do - and how you could get involved in fascinating, hands-on research.

What:              CCWD student information apéro

When:             Wednesday, December 13th from 17.00-18.00

Where:            SOF-G21

The event will feature a short presentation followed by a Marketplace where you can mingle around and inform yourself about selected projects presented by our researchers. Snacks and refreshments will also be provided. Therefore, whether you just want to inform yourself about ongoing projects or whether you are thinking about writing a thesis in this field or at our chair, we would be very pleased to have you.

Please register for the event. Registration is not mandatory but very welcome. If you are curious and want to inform yourself beforehand, please check our website:
