ISOTIS kick-off conference in Utrecht (Jan 15-17, 2017)

From January 15th till the 17th the ISOTIS kick-off conference took place. The first ISOTIS meeting was very informative. We had the opportunity to introduce our sub-project, and to present some preliminary findings. Our idea to combine several datasets to create a pseudo panel to describe inequalities in various stages of the educational career was well received. The final diner in the academic building of Utrecht University was very nice and a good start of the project.
