COST co-organized International Training School

Jun 19 - Jun 22, 2018



The 6th EMES International Training School. It will focus on research methods issues from research design to epistemology and methodology.

The mission of COST is to enable break-through scientific and technological developments leading to new concepts and icroducts and thereby contribute to strengthening Europe’s research and innovation capacities. In this context, the organization of the next EMES-COST-CNRS Training School constitutes an amazing opportunity for the empowerment of the next generation of social enterprise (SE) scholars, especially for early stage researchers such as PhD students and Early Career Investigators (ECI).

Such events are all the more important as SE are not only oriented towards the resolution of important social and/or environnemental issues but they are also developing rapidly throughout the world. It is therefore not a surprise that market, political and scientific communities give them the attention they deserve.

The delivery of intensive training on a this new, emerging and powerful field will thus represent an amazing opportunity for the empowerment of the next generation of SE scholars. A total of 62 applications were received out of which 40 participants will be selected. During this training school these early career researchers will have an opportunity to present their ongoing work and get feedback from their peers and established scholars. An impressive faculty body will participate in the training school with an open spirit and in an informal environment that welcomes face-to-face exchange.

This is the sixth edition of the EMES summer schools and possibility of making it a COST training school allows for includion of peripheral country participants and emerging researchers. Over 40 countries will be represented in this training school, which will offer high-academic profile plenary sessions, applied methodological sessions as well as working groups throughout the discussions with selected participants.

The training school will be hosted by the Institute of Labour Economics and Industrial Sociology (LEST – CNRS) one of EMES’ French institutional members with the support of the French national research centre, CNRS.
