The ECPR Summer School in Methods and Techniques (SSMT) is an annual event complementing
the Winter School in Methods and Techniques, providing intermediate-level training
for advanced students and junior researchers. Launched in 2006, the SSMT has been
held at the University of Ljubljana up to, and including, the 2012 event.
The SSMT provides high quality up-to-date training in a broad range of specially
selected methods across the whole spectrum of approaches employed within the Social
Sciences. It especially offers intermediate-level main courses, whereas the
ECPR Winter School in Methods and Techniques (WSMT) offers introductory
and more advanced courses.
The Main courses consist of either five or ten teaching days (1-week or 2-week courses)
and three hours teaching is scheduled for each day. In addition, participants are
given from three to four hours’ additional work (reading and supplementary practical
work) each day.
Prior to the Main courses, some refresher courses are also offered, in a format
of three teaching days, each of which is scheduled to last six hours. Last but not
least, the SSMT also hosts a lively plenary and social programme.
