Application and registration

First European Summer School on Solidarity Economy: Is it possible to foster a common agenda for Solidarity Economy in Europe?

4 - 8 September 2017, CES | Lisbon

Applications are open until May 20, 2017. For logistical reasons, the course can only accommodate up to 30 participants and operate with the minimum number of 20 enrolled persons.

Those interested in the Summer Course should submit a letter of motivation and a short cv (2 pages maximum each one) [HERE]. The letter of motivation - which may be written in English, Portuguese, Spanish or French - should explain the interest in Solidarity Economy and the contribution that participation in this Summer School can bring to the academic or activist path of the candidate. Although a minimum academic degree is not required to attend Summer School, the format adopted applies mainly to researchers and PhD students who are concerned with the theoretical /epistemological issues on the Solidarity Economy. For them, Summer School offers also the possibility of having personalized orientation meetings with academic specialists.

The result of the selection process will be communicated by email until May 31, 2017, and from that date on, those whose application has been accepted must be registered online.

Registration covers the following costs: participation in thematic sessions and other planned activities; folders with reading material; transportation for visits to Solidarity Economy initiatives; coffee-breaks and opening and closing dinners. Not included in the registration: the trip to Lisbon, accommodation (a list of hotels and prices will be available) and meals (a list of restaurants near the venue of the Summer School will be available).
