The EARA-EADP-SRA summer school was a big success!

The 2022 edition of the EARA-EADP-SRA Summer School took place in Wicklow, Ireland from Saturday, August 20th until Wednesday, August 24th afternoon. Eight senior scholars and 24 junior scholars joined together for this research-intensive experience. 


The program was packed with many didactic sessions including workshops from senior scholars with interactive assignments for junior scholars as well as professional development round-table discussions. Junior scholars also presented their current dissertation work and were able to receive meaningful feedback  from fellow student colleagues and senior scholars.
