Application and registration

Towards a global socioeconomy. Solidarity Economy in times of conservatism and populism


Applications are open until May 20, 2020. For logistical reasons, the Summer School can only accommodate up to 30 participants and operate with the minimum number of 20 enrolled persons.

Those interested in the summer school should submit a letter of motivation and a short CV (maximum 2 pages each) [HERE]. The letter of motivation - which may be written in English - 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, the format adopted applies mainly to researchers and PhD students who are concerned with theoretical /epistemological issues on Solidarity Economy. For them, the summer school also offers the possibility of having personalised orientation meetings with academic specialists.

The result of the selection process will be communicated by email by May 31, 2020, and from that date on, those whose applications have been accepted must register online and pay the due fee.

Registration covers: participation in thematic sessions and other planned activities; folders with reading material; transportation for visits to Solidarity Economy initiatives; coffee-breaks, opening and closing dinners. Not included in the registration: 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).
