CALLS Hub conference 2018

As the CALLS Hub project draws to a close, we will be holding a final event looking towards the future of the LSs by highlighting students and early career researchers who have used the Longitudinal Studies.

Our day conference will be held in St Andrews on Friday March 23rd. Main themes for the sessions are 'Social, economic and residential mobility', 'Inequalities' and 'Lifecourse and the family'. We will also hold a panel discussion on the ways in which LS research impact can be maximised.
