RRPP 2nd microsimulation workshop

FREN research associates, Jelena Zarkovic Rakic and Sasa Randjelovic, have participated at the 2nd microsimulation workshop which took place on 11-12 October 2012 in Bucharest, Romania. The workshop was organized by the Institute for Social and Economic research – ISER – at the University of Essex. This research workshop brought together policy makers, users of EUROMOD (tax-benefit micro-simulation model for the European Union), other users of micro-simulation analysis and academic scholars working in related areas.

Our researchers presented a paper which is a result of their work on the project ”Making work pay - the case of Serbia and Macedonia” funded by the Regional Research Promotion Program (RRPP) Western Balkans (https://www.iser.essex.ac.uk/euromod/events/2nd-microsimulation-workshop).

 Additionally, Jelena Zarkovic Rakic and Sasa Randjelovic,were invited to participate at the EUROMOD annual project meeting prior to the workshop, on the 10 October, to present FREN’s activities using EUROMOD in Serbia  (for more information see attached presentation).
