Summer School

emma Doctoral Summer School

Next to the conference, the emma summer school is organized every other year. The emma summer school aims to provide an international and supportive setting in which doctoral researchers in the field of media management can exchange knowledge with peers, senior scholars and industry delegates. By presenting research projects, discussing feedback participants both gain deeper understanding of their work from a broader perspective and develop oral and writing skills. Additionally, through interaction with peers, scholars and practitioners, the emma summer school proved to be a good place for networking. emma Doctoral Summer School 2018 took place in Bournemouth (UK) at 4-6 July. It was a successful event organised by the Faculty of Media & Communication and the Research Group Advances in Media Management (AiMM). You can find the full report here. In 2020 the summer school will take place in Lisbon at the ISCTE- University Institute of Lisbon and will be organized by Centro de Investigação e Estudos de Sociologia (Sociology Research Center) and the Communication Sciences Department, a part of the School of Sociology and Public Policies. The event will take place from 7 to 10 july, 2020.
