Developing a new generation of social researchers

A central objective of the Network of Excellence is to provide high-level training in comparative research for the next generation of researchers. First of all, training of young scholars will directly contribute to the development of research on social cohesion in Europe during the years of the funding. Additionally, it will provide an important mechanism through which the activities of the network can be prolonged beyond the formal duration of network funding. Three types of training activities will be organized. These are: summer schools, methodology workshops, and student exchanges. These activities combine relatively standardized courses for students in several domains with individual advice and collaborations across the participating institutes.
