Summer school (05/09/2022 > 16/09/2022)

FLAMES (Flanders Training Network for Methodology and Statistics) organizes a two-week Summer School which aims to provide practical methodological and statistical training to young researchers from all disciplines, either with an academic (PhD students in particular) or with a non-academic background.


The formula of the yearly FLAMES Summer School has been most successful since 2013: each year, a wide variety of courses by experts in statistics and in qualitative methodology is being offered during an intense period of two weeks. This year’s edition will take place at the University of Antwerp.


Whether you are a complete dummy, a beginner with a limited knowledge, or a more experienced researcher with a broad basic knowledge of methodology and statistics, the FLAMES summer school offers courses at your level, grounded in everyday research practice.


The program consists of a wide number of courses (so-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. This year, the FLAMES Summer School will offer both online and on-campus courses.

  • On-campus courses will take place at the University of Antwerp, campus Groenenborger.
  • The course schedule can be downloaded through this link.


Registrations will start on Friday, May 13 at 9 am CET, by which time you will be able to register on the dedicated website.


The pre-summer school 2022 course “Introduction to R” is only available for participants of the Flames Summer School. Participating in a summer school course based on R requires you to understand R software and have the skills to use it. If you don’t have any knowledge of R but would like to subscribe for an R-based summer school course, you may subscribe free of charge for the Introduction to R, which will be taught as an online course from 29th August to 2nd September 2022.


Local organizers at the University of Antwerp: dr. Erik Fransen and dr. Jarl Kampen.
