17 Oct LONGPOP Researchers successfully complete their individual research projects and training

August and September marked the end of the contracts for most of the Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) hired for a period of 3 years in the LONGPOP project. The Final Workshop, held from 16 to 17 September in Edinburgh (United Kingdom), was the last meeting of the LONGPOP network, in which researchers had the opportunity to present the fruits of their individual researches to the rest of the team, which in many cases will soon result in the achievement of a doctoral thesis.

The ESRs’ presentations were:

  • Dealing with demographic stress in childhood: Parental death and the transition to adulthood in the Netherlands, 1850-1952Matthias Rosenbaum-Feldbrügge (Radboud University)
  • The Richer the Better? The impact of SES and family structure on Adult Mortality in a Long-Term PerspectiveEnrico Debiasi (Lund University)
