Seven intensive, one-week courses will be offered during the period from 18 July to 30 September 2016. All courses will be highly interactive, method-, and application-oriented. They will be delivered by outstanding instructors from PennState, the University of Chile, the University of Vienna, the University of Leeds, and RWTH Aachen University. These courses have been designed to equip you with insights into state-of-the-art research methods and supporting software packages. You will also have the opportunity to apply these insights in order to solve hands-on research problems and to discuss your findings with your peers. What better way to prepare for your empirical master thesis, PhD project or journal publication?

Your instructors will also spend time describing their own academic career trajectory, extracting lessons learned and discussing the particularities of academic careers in their respective countries.
