The ESPAnet Summer/Winter Schools are open to (post-)doctoral researchers with projects related to social policy from any discipline and vary in length. 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. Participants attend lectures, excursions and participate in discussions. They also present their projects and receive comments from senior researchers and other participants.
