the summer methodology school of SIMA and SIM does not stop and moves online! HOW WILL IT WORK?

Each participant will receive Video-tutorials and Assignments specially created by the school teachers to prepare for on-line meetings.

During the school week, we will connect in video-streaming for 6 hours a day for 3 days with the 3 teachers of the school. In these sessions:

  • we will discuss the topics presented in the introductory videos
  • we will correct and discuss the assignments
  • we will discuss the specific issues and problems that you are facing in your research path and that you want to share with the classroom and with the teachers

For who is it?

The school is mainly aimed at PhD students in the first and second year, but also students who want to undertake a PhD program or young research collaborators who feel the need to strengthen their methodological "basics".

To make the discussion possible, a maximum number of participants in the program is foreseen. No more than 25. WHERE WILL IT BE HELD?

Directly to your home! To connect with each other we will use the Zoom platform WHEN WILL IT BE TAKEN?

In the week between 20 and 25 July. But we will start meeting already starting from 6 July to get to know us and to provide you with access to all the material WHAT ARE THE TOPICS OF THE SCHOOL AND WHO WILL MY TEACHERS BE?
