STEG Theme Workshop Series 2022

at 14:00 BST, London

Each of the six STEG Themes will host online workshops in September 2022. These workshops will play a role in helping to share knowledge of the current research frontier and in identifying open research questions.

This workshop focused on how improved data or economic measurement can help shed a light on the process of structural transformation and its link to economic growth. There is a particular interest in understanding the challenges for low-income countries.

The recording of the workshop will be available soon.
