Learning from those who “do” is the best way to truly understand the practical side of research. Throughout the year ESOMAR runs an extensive calendar of workshops aimed at aiding in the development of practical research skills.
All workshops are taught by a workshop leader with extensive knowledge in his or her field and will provide you with an opportunity to train with some of the industry’s leading specialist in the areas.
Additional to the workshops, every summer ESOMAR runs The Summer Academy. Consisting of 3 days of workshops and a 1 day seminar focusing on specific themes and aiming to provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of specific methods and techniques.
