5th International Summer School
5th International Summer School on
EARLY MORNING SESSIONSThese will be organised in parallel workshops focussing on three main areas relating to the current projects of young researchers enrolled in the EU PhD programme. The workshops, which will be introduced by the two tutors responsible for co-ordination, will be dedicated to illustrations of research projects by young researchers. The young researchers are expected to prepare their reports in English (in short article or brief research report format ready for submission to an international journal) to be sent to tutors before the summer school (no later than the end of April). As well as the young researchers enrolled in the PhD programme, a limited number of participants may attend the workshops on the basis of an order of ranking of their choice.
LATE MORNING SESSIONSThese will involve open discussion within the parallel working groups of the research reports illustrated in the early morning sessions. Discussion will be led by the two tutors, who will co-ordinate the workshops. Other EU PhD tutors belonging to the network and invited members of the teaching staff, who attend these sessions as external experts, are also expected to contribute to the discussion, together with the other summer school participants.
At the end of the session the tutors will be asked to summarise the key points arising during the discussion in a list of questions to the EU PhD researchers aimed at improving their research reports.
EARLY AFTERNOON SESSIONSThese will be informal meetings between participants and teaching staff providing an opportunity for individual tutoring for EU Ph.D. young researchers and mutual knowledge-sharing.
LATE AFTERNOON SESSIONSThese will involve round-table discussions focussing on one of the crucial issues relating to the three parallel thematic workshops. These round tables will involve all the tutors from the EU PhD network plus external experts invited ad hoc.
|There will be a special training session on the didactic use of the internet site of the EU PhD on Social representations and Communication. It will look particularly at the section on the meta-analysis of the literature on social representations, introduced by the scientific co-ordinator of the EU PhD programme.|
EVENING SESSIONSThese will be keynote lectures presented in plenary session by leading international experts focussing on crucial theoretical and methodological topics of general interest for the development of research on Social Representations. They will be closely linked to the fields addressed in the workshops and round tables held during the previous session.
|There will be dedicated meetings between EU PhD young researchers and their national and foreign tutors and the representative members of the European PhD executive Committee including the programme director and co-ordinator|

- European PhD students
Students enrolled in the European PhD programme in 1996-97, 1997-98 or 1998-99.
Students selected for the 1999-2000 on condition that they are enrolled for the 1999-2000 academic year (see conditions for application to the European PhD on the appropriate sheet).
Once enrolled, European PhD students will be allowed to take part in the Summer School free of charge with financial support from the T.M.R. contract (if eligible on the basis of the conditions to apply for T.M.R. support).
Two (or three if available) postgraduates, preferably enrolled in national PhD courses or at least involved in team research programmes, will be selected to attend the summer school as long as they have been introduced by one of the Universities of the Socrates-Erasmus network (IC 29415-IC-1-98-IT-ERASMUS-1).
Postgraduates from a University not in the network, even from outside Europe, subject to availability of places.
The summer school will be open to participants in previous summer schools selected from the new list of applicants.

1) citizens of the EU and associated countries (Norway, Liechtenstein , Iceland and Israel). Researchers who are not nationals of a Member States of the Community may be selected by the committee as participants in the Summer School, but they cannot apply for T.M.R. support;
2) researchers aged under 35 or under (researchers whose place of work is in a less-favoured region of the EU, women researchers and researchers who work in industry are specific target groups for T.M.R.).
Researchers over 35 may be selected by the committee as participants in the Summer School, but they cannot apply for T.M.R. support.
The expenses relating to the participation in the Summer School of the young researchers aged 35 years or under and citizens of the EU shall comprise only certain costs of travel (the cheapest economy class air fare or second class train fare or bus from the researcher's place of work), accommodation (including food and lodging, but excluding telephone calls and other extras) and participation fee (fee no higher than fees charged to other participants).
Speakers' fees, meeting for selecting the applicants and social events are not to be considered as allowable costs under T.M.R. In order to keep registration fees, the teachers will not be paid for their scientific contribution.
T.M.R. can provide up to 50% of the cost of travel and accommodation related to the participation of the invited speakers (category B) and financial support to some of the selected young researchers and post-graduate students (category A). With respect to Young Researchers, the T.M.R. contract states :
"The T.M.R. activity is for the benefit of young Researchers (YR). A fraction of the budget has to go towards the support of YR. Contractors do not have to cover 100% of the expenses of all or any of them. It may in fact be undesirable to pay 100% of young researchers' costs. It has been found useful that the YR do pay a non-returnable part of the registration fee before an event. This selects only serious candidates and ensures that most of them do in fact attend".
The selected researchers may not benefit, for any given expense in connection with participation, from T.M.R. funding at the same time as from any other source. It is however allowable for different expenses to be funded from different sources (e.g. registration fees from one source and travel from T.M.R.).
Applications must be addressed to the scientist responsible for the T.M.R. contract and for the organisation of the Summer School (Prof. A.S. de Rosa). The Commission of the European Union is not to be contacted for support for individual participation in this or other Summer Schools.
