For PhD students the Autumn School will provide an opportunity to discuss their work, receive feedback, and make choices regarding theories, methods and data representations most fitting their research goals. The School will also provide a structured overview of social innovation related academic debate which will be presented by well-known experts in the field. Guest professors and tutors will provide input in various forms (keynotes, workshops, feedback, individual consultations, etc.).
Besides plenary sessions, the Autumn school will hold working group discussions on the student research cases as well as practical issues participants might face in their work - such as context and sector-related peculiarities of innovations, research strategies, writing-related issues. It is expected that up to 12 PhD students will be admitted to the School. There is no registration fee and the expenses related to accommodation and catering will be covered by the organisers. The admitted students are expected to cover their travel costs.
The Autumn School is organised by the Baltic Studies Centre (BSC) with support of ESRS and University of Latvia and in conjunction with another scientific event – the 3rd SISA (Systems Innovation for Sustainable Agriculture) Workshop, which will enhance opportunities for scientific interaction.
