Within the Horizon 2020 project COHSMO, a summer school aimed at PhD students will be held on

Territorial Cohesion and Social Investment: what challenges for the European Social Model?

The summer school will be held in Aalborg (Denmark) from 24 to 27 August 2021.

The Summer School aims at addressing theoretical and methodological issues related to “territorial cohesion”, “social investment” and the “European Social model” cross-disciplinary sharing the insights gained with the COHSMO project with young scholars and the wider academic community.

The themes will be discussed with extended references to how we translated concepts into a methodological frame useful for empirical research. What concepts have been used? How did we operationalize the research questions and concepts? How did we solve criticalities along the way in our comparative research?
