8th EMOS Workshop

On Tuesday, 20 September 2022, the EMOS network will meet to discuss current developments and ideas for the future related to teaching official statistics. While last year's workshop could only take place online due to the pandemic, this year the workshop will be a hybrid event held in-person and virtually. The event will take place in Pisa at the Centro Congressi ‘Le Benedettine’. The livestream will be available on the EMOS YouTube channel. The event is hosted by Eurostat in collaboration with the Department of Economics and Management of the University of Pisa and is addressed to all interested statistics students, educators and professionals.
