There is no better way to close this challenging year than announcing our next training school for 2022. It will take place at the University of Seville (Spain), where we already held an excellent PhD Seminar during the Empower-SE COST Action that we just closed.
Under the title “The key role of social enterprises and the social and solidarity economy in post-pandemic societies”, the 8th EMES International Training School (#8EMESschool) aims to reinforce knowledge about social entrepreneurship initiatives and their potential in a historical moment. These initiatives are more necessary than ever due to their contribution to solving social problems.
Around 300 PhD candidates and early career researchers (ERC) from over 40 countries have participated in the seven successful editions of the EMES Training Schools so far. ERC and PhDs constitute a central part of EMES as shown by the particular membership category for PhD students, the seat reserved for PhD students in the EMES Board of Directors, and various concrete outputs led by PhD themselves.
We recently launched the Call for applications, and you can download it here.
We look forward to welcoming you to Seville!
