The program “digital methods, climate
The program “digital methods, climate & health” targets different institutes and research groups who have worked or are working within the cross-disciplinary themes of climate and health. It intends to bring together different profiles and disciplinary fields for an exchange of experience and a critical review of the digital methods and tools developed around these themes. This will take place in the form of a seminar (4 to 5 sessions) followed by 2 or 3 days of hands-on workshops. Participants will create a “mini research project” in speedy fashion in order to experiment the different stages associated with the method. They will be able to familiarize themselves with digital tools/platforms of analysis (Cortext, Gargantext, Hyphe etc.)
The seminar sessions will go through the research works of each project and share the research methods developed as well as the study of digital domain (on-line discussion and debate, mobilization strategies on the web etc) and the use of digital methods (text analysis, social network analysis etc). Three day workshop will follow and focus on addressing the methods invoked during the seminar.
We are looking for partners (institutes / research groups) to develop and put this program into practice by associating their competences in theory and practice in order to grasp this multifaceted theme. Partners will have on one hand the role of defining together the themes of each seminar session based on a call for communications. Partners will also discuss together the form in which the seminar and the hands-on workshops will take place (location, budget allocation etc).
Communication of interest should can be adressed to the team from Centre Virchow-Villermé before the 15 July 2016 to the following addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org ; email@example.com ; firstname.lastname@example.org

As the world has entered
As the world has entered a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene, where humans have become the main forces of transformation of the planet, this Summer School intends to break away from disciplinary divides and bring a fresh look on the key issues brought upon by this ‘age of humans’. Combining natural sciences and social sciences, it seeks to provide students with a framework to think the Earth and the World together.
The Summer School is designed for graduate students and PhD candidates from all disciplines. It is the first of a series of three, supported by the EDGE project: Environmental Diplomacy and Geopolitics.

The Institute of Public Health,
The Institute of Public Health, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, the Centre Virchow-Villermé and Chiba University from Japan jointly organize a summerschool about global health interventions in local contexts. Lecturer from Japan, France, United States, Netherlands and Germany aim to explicate social and cultural factors that need to be evaluated and considered when thinking about global health interventions in local contexts. This summerschool particularly enables students to understand culture as tacit knowledge that underlies all behaviours, including those of global health players and health professionals. The course will guide students to critically reflect the assumptions and tools used in public and global health and to understand the possible implications of the paradigms underlying global health.
