Curriculum Vitae
Daša Farčnik, PhD, is a researcher and assistant professor at the School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana. Her research interests are mainly related to the economics of education and labour economics. She has modelled and empirically investigated the school-to-work transition of higher education graduates in Slovenia by using employer-employee data. She has participated in the proposal for changing the financing of higher education for the third millennium in Slovenia. She has also investigated the effectiveness of education and training systems in order to improve the training of adult educators. In particular, she has been involved in the Survey of Adult Skills (PIAAC), where she has focused on the data analysis of matching between competences of an individual and the job requirements. In the labour economics field of research she focuses on the analysis of the labour demand in Slovenia in the framework of firms' strategic restructuring and analysis of government subsidies on labour adjustment processes. She has also investigated the role of HRM as an intangible asset and investment in human capital from the perspective of future competitive advantages of firms especially as a driver for innovation. Related to investment in human capital, she has also investigated the application of Ability-Motivation-Opportunity model to explain the link between HRM and innovation in transitional firms. She has published several papers and book chapters among others in International Journal of Manpower and Croatian Economic Survey.
