FLAMES (Flanders Training Network for Methodology and Statistics) organizes a two-week Summer School aiming at providing practical methodological and statistical training to young researchers (particularly PhD students) from all disciplines.
After the success of the FLAMES Summer School in 2013 (at KULeuven), 2014 (at UGent), 2015 (at VUB), 2016 (at UHasselt) , 2017 (at UAntwerp) and 2018 (at KULeuven) we are going to offer and even broader variety of courses from top lecturers around the world.
Whether you are a complete dummy, a starter with a limited knowledge, or a more experienced researcher with a broad basic knowledge in the world of methodology and statistics, the FLAMES summer school offers courses at your level, which emphasizes everyday research practice.
The program consists of 23 courses (called modules) from which participants can choose. Each module seamlessly connects theory with hands-on exercises or lab sessions, focusing on various disciplines and software packages whenever possible. The basic courses are combined in 2 recommended tracks, that directly connect to the prior knowledge of the participant. This year the FLAMES Summer School will take place at Gent University, De Sterre.
