May 6, 2020 from 2.20 to 3 p.m. (Finnish time, GMT+3)
The Finnish Basic Income Experiment was the world's first statutory, nationwide and randomized basic income experiment. It has aroused exceptional interest both domestically and internationally.
How did the Basic Income Experiment affect participants' employment? What were the effects on health, livelihoods and experiences of government bureaucracy? In interviews, how do the participants perceive the significance of the experiment in their lives?
The final results of the basic income experiment will be released on Wednesday, May 6th. In the webinar, the researchers present the findings of the basic income experiment on the employment and well-being of the participants.
The results presented in the seminar are based on an analysis register data from both pilot years as well as on face-to-face interviews of the participants of the experiment. In addition, the survey data are analyzed more comprehensively than before.
The seminar is co-organized by Kela, the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, and Think Corner of the University of Helsinki. The seminar will be held in Finnish from 1 pm to 2.15 pm and in English from 2.20 pm to 3.00 pm. The webcast is open to anyone interested, and prior registration is not required.
