Welcome to the 8th International Workshop on Efficiency in Education, Health and other Public Services! This workshop is the eighth of a series of academic meetings focused on the efficiency analysis of education institutions and other public sectors, the previous editions being organized in Greece (Thessaloniki, 2013), United Kingdom (London, 2014 and Huddersfield, 2018), Belgium (Leuven, 2015), Italy (Milan, 2016), Hungary (Budapest, 2017) and Spain (Barcelona, 2019). Suspended because of COVID-19 in 2020 and 2021, this year the Workshop will be again proposed in on-campus, vis-à-vis format.

Call for papers
Evidence-based policy in education and in other fields of the public sector implies the use of sophisticated techniques to assess the performance and efficiency of organizations. The evaluation of national-level reforms and the assessment of specific interventions in education and other public services require accurate approaches and advanced methods.
The purpose of the Workshop is to focus on specific challenges around measuring performance in education and other public services sectors. The Workshop will bring together scholars from various disciplines and fields to debate the present and future challenges in education and public sector efficiency, performance measurement, and policy and managerial implications of the on-going research. The Workshop provides an ideal platform for presenting new methods, applications of existing techniques and advances in theoretical and empirical research.
