The Public Opinion Research Unit at the University of Macedonia Research Institute of Applied Social and Economic Sciences launches its 1st Summer School in Research and Computational Methods. The Summer School will take place in Thessaloniki, from July 9th to July 13th.
This school offers a unique opportunity to undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students as well as to young researchers and professionals to deepen their knowledge of research methods and explore new fields of expertise.
A basic course “Research Methods in Social Sciences: Combining Historical with Quantitative approaches” is offered along with optional choices, all of which introduce state-of-the-art approaches to survey design, data collection and analysis. Further, established researchers from the University of Oxford & EUI and Stanford University offer the opportunity for discussion and exchange of views on cross-cutting issues.
The working language is English and no prior knowledge on statistics or software is required. Throughout the courses, we will be using free programming software (R, Python and QGIS).
