Call for registration 10th Winter School on Research Methodology in Social Sciences, Urban Studies, and Spatial Planning

We are thrilled to announce the opening of the registration for the 10th edition of the Winter School on Research Methodology in Social Sciences, Urban Studies, and Spatial Planning!

The Winter School will take place from the 13th to the 16th of February 2024 in Florence, Italy, and we will celebrate the decennial of this event that has been attended by hundreds of young researchers who achieved their PhD and a successful career in Academia.

The program is designed to improve, implement, and deepen your skillset as researchers and PhD students, with various keynotes and workshops that are tackling basic tools, classic and innovative methods, and approaches, while offering tips and tricks directly from fellow colleagues or more experienced researchers.

Attending the Winter School will give you the opportunity to kick off – or continue - your PhD or your research project with the right tools and skills.

The first two days of workshops will be dedicated to BASICS, where you can learn how to design your own research, deepen your understanding of academic writing and academic publishing. The second day is about the research METHODS, both in qualitative and quantitative form, which can give diverse options to tackle your research problematization and goals. The third day is going to be reserved for the APPROACHES and TIPS&TRICKS, with the knowledge gained you can understand better your role in academia and your potential future pathways, while discovering practical and interesting facts that might not be always explicitly said by your supervisors and colleagues. Within and around these workshops there will be moments to explore and socialize with your fellow PhD students and build together with us the network of the Winter School.

You can register directly via the Google Form until 26/01/2024, 16h.

Attendees from all countries are welcome having at least achieved a master’s degree. The Winter School will be held in English and will provide students with 4 credits (to be agreed with the sending universities).
