PhD Summer School in Economics, Management, Political Science, Law and Public Administration

Summer School takes place on 29.06.–01.07.2020 in Viljandi, Estonia


The aim of the PhD Summer School is to develop PhD students’ presentation skills as well as their qualification of doing research, and enhance both intra-, interdistsiplinary and international research co-operation. PhD students and their supervisors from the fields of Economics, Business Administration, Political Science, Law, Governments and Politics, Public Administration and Management are welcome to participate.

This year's summer school is different from all previous ones due to the worldwide pandemic of coronavirus. As most of our foreign guest lecturers cannot attend the event physically, some sessions will be arranged via web. This enables to expand the audience even though the number of physical participants is limited.

Doctoral School in Economics and Innovation is a partnership between University of Tartu, Tallinn University of Technology, Tallinn University, Estonian University of Life Sciences, Estonian Business School and Bank of Estonia. We offer PhD students different possibilities to focus on their research and doctoral studies. Doctoral School is financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the institutional package measure for R&D institutions and higher education institutions (ASTRA).
