10 years COCON

Scientific symposium Schloss Marbach

9 June 2017

Prof. Dr. Marlis Buchmann

 

On the occasion of the recent 10th anniversary of the longitudinal study COCON, a scientific symposium was held at Marbach Castle with a focus on the study’s overarching theme of “Social inequality, life course transitions, and adolescent socio-emotional and productive development”. An international, interdisciplinary group of renowned scholars came together to discuss recent findings in the field derived from several international data bases. The group also debated challenges, open questions, and promising perspectives for future research.

The event was accompanied by a tribute to Marlis Buchmann, principal investigator of the COCON study and former director of the Jacobs Center for Productive Youth Development. Her merits in setting up and pushing forward the scientific work at the Jacobs Center and her outstanding contributions to research on human development and the life course were recognized in speeches by Lavinia Jacobs, Gabriele Siegert, Tina Malti, and Michael Shanahan. In his capacity as the new director of the Jacobs Center, Michael Shanahan completed the festivities with an outlook on future expansions of the center’s research program.
