European Ph.D on Social Representations and Communication
So.Re.Com. Joint-IDP Workshops and Seminars

Methodological Training & Transferable skills workshops

In addition to the training activities and scientific events formally included as organizational commitment in the EC approved SoReCom Joint - IDP contract (3 training events per year: Winter, Spring and Summer Sessions), specific Seminars and Workshops on "Food for mind and Methodological Training  & Transferable skills" will be organised at the European/International Joint PhD in S.R. & C. Research Centre and Multimedia Lab with the active participation of the doctoral trainees and supervisors

These seminars, involving coordination with other professors and other researchers not only from the European/International Joint PhD laboratory but also from other Sapienza departments and partner institutions, are open to the active participation of all the doctoral trainees currently enrolled in the European/International Joint PhD in Social Representations and Communication that are physically present at the lab. 

The seminars with an active participation of professors from outside the lab (like the seminar on October 21 streamed via web-interactive video conference) will also be available through streaming to the European/International Joint PhD doctoral trainees who are currently outside of the lab in Rome (in USA, Austria, Romania).
