The ESPAnet Summer/Winter Schools are open to doctoral students with projects related to social policy from any discipline. They usually last between 10 and 14 days. Topics covered during summer/winter schools are, for example, the origins and development of social policy, principles and practices of benefit systems and social services, European social policy, methods of comparative research, and the identification and use of available quantitative and qualitative data sets. Students take part in lectures, excursions and discussions. They also present their projects and receive comments from staff and other students.
