Courses & seminars

FLAMES organizes several courses into methodology and statistics throughout the academic year. The level of difficulty ranges from beginner, over intermediate to advanced. Our program includes inter-university courses and local events. Inter-university courses are multi-day courses on statistical or methodological topics, that are a collaboration between FLAMES coordinators from at least 3 universities. The venue of inter-university courses rotates between the five universities, and some of the courses are organized more than once a year. Local events are organized by one university, and include seminars, workshops and 1-to-many day courses.

All FLAMES courses are free of charge for PhD students and postdoctoral researchers. The courses are also accessible to researchers from other (non-Flemish) universities and for people from the private sector, albeit not free of charge.

You will be able to download a pdf from all the FLAMES courses and seminars pretty soon here.

important notice: If you want to register for more than one event, please do it separately.
