The main objective of the Summer School is to offer to a well-motivated small group of young people (30 students) starting their scientific research journey an opportunity for high-level interdisciplinary training on the crucial issues on reliability of scientific findings and predictions.
The idea of the course is based on the recent debate concerning the crisis of reproducibility and replicability in scientific research.
We will provide a broad and interdisciplinary view, as well as the tools that may enable individual participants to focus on specific aspects of replicability that are relevant to their own discipline of interest.
Activities will include both main lectures and lab sessions for Master and Ph.D. students coming from different countries.
During lectures, participants will be provided with a set of theoretical and applied tools to conduct and critically evaluate rigorous research. In workshop activities, they will have the opportunity to discuss the topics with both teachers and peers in order to overcome traditional boundaries between statistics and philosophy and other sciences as well as to stimulate innovative research hypotheses and international collaborations.
