TRiSS Summer Schools & Short-Term Courses

Call for Short-Term Courses 2017/2018 NOW OPEN

TRiSS would like to invite research associates to submit proposals for seed funding for short-term courses and workshops in the social sciences. These courses can be aimed at academics, PhD students, professionals, policy makers, the general public etc and can range from a half day to 5 days in duration. These courses are an opportunity to promote the diversity of excellent research in the social sciences at Trinity and applications are welcomed from academics across all TRiSS disciplines.

Applicants are encouraged to identify an area of their teaching or research which may be suitable for a short course and to apply either as a sole facilitator or in collaboration with other academics from TCD or elsewhere. TRiSS has identified a demand in the Irish public sector for short courses in R programming, Cost-Benefit Analysis, Regulatory Impact Assessment, Public Sector Economics and Appraisal methods including multi-criteria analysis and applications are particularly welcomed in these areas (though not to the exclusion of any other topics). Courses aimed at the Irish public sector must be a minimum of 3 days in duration and must have a significant applied component.

Courses do not need to be held on consecutive days. For example, a 3-day course could be held over 3 Saturdays or one evening per week. All courses must be completed by December 2018.

This funding programme is being run with the support of the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Strategic Fund.
