The Summer School has offered a wide variety of courses in quantitative data analysis and research methods from foundational to the advanced levels. The courses combine lectures with lab tutorial sessions and research seminars delivered by leading experts from universities at home and abroad. The program seeks to foster academic research and careers of the young scholars through systematic training courses and unique networking opportunities.
