About CEN

The Copenhagen Education Network (CEN) is a group of economic researchers interested in education.
The network was initiated in spring 2014 by economists from Economics Departments at Copenhagen Business School (CBS), University of Copenhagen (KU) and the Danish Center for Social Science Research (VIVE). It has since been joined by researchers from Lund University, Rockwool Fonden and Kraks Fonden.

The purpose is to provide a venue for economists focusing on education in their research, to present research papers and exchange ideas.

We have three workshops every year, alternating between VIVE, UCPH and CBS. We discuss papers presented by the network participants and a guest speaker. Both theoretical and empirical papers will be presented.

Call for paper

Dear all,

We are pleased to announce that the next Copenhagen Education Network workshop will be organized by UDDanKvant and held at Department of Economics at Copenhagen University, Wednesday September 25, 2024.

The keynote speaker will be Katrine Løken. Katrine V. Løken is Professor of Economics at the Norwegian School of Economics. Her PhD is from University of Bergen in 2010. She is co-research director at CELE since 2017, and a Principal Investigator at the Centre of Excellence FAIR (Centre for Experimental Research on Fairness, Inequality and Rationality). Her main research interests are in early investments in children, and the long-term outcomes and effects of different social policies. She has focused on identifying causal effects of policies such as parental leave, subsidized day care, father’s quota in leave, and cash subsidies for families. Her work combines state-of-the art statistical analysis with access to uniquely detailed Norwegian register data. More recently, she has started a new project looking at the causal effect of incarceration. With the aim of pushing the research frontier in the economics of crime, Loken has acquired access to unique datasets on criminals and victims. Katrine V. Løken has been published in leading economic journals, including American Economic Review, Journal of Political Economy, Review of Economics and Statistics, Journal of Public Economics and American Economic Journal: Applied Economics. Katrine V. Løken is currently Managing Editor at Review of Economic Studies.
