Summer School Madrid


June 27 – July 1, 2016
Madrid, SPAIN

The main objective of the METRICS ITN is to provide to some young stage researchers the knowledge and skills required for the analysis of the future Internet. In this summer school in Madrid we focus on providing the students with the transferable skills needed to carry successful research projects. Particularly the event agenda includes courses and activities to improve the students skills in leadership, management and entrepreneurship. This area of knowledge is orthogonal and complementary to the other areas covered in the previous workshops and summer schools of the METRICS project.

The courses are provided by the Universidad del Instituto de Empresa (IE) and the Escuela de Organizacion Industrial (EOI) and they will take place at the University Carlos III of Madrid in Leganes and at the Escuela de Organización Industrial (EOI), located in Madrid.

The IE will offer also a workshop in which participants will learn the tools of coaching and how to apply them in order to facilitate change in individuals and groups. Coaching tools directly improve goal-setting and visioning processes. Furthermore, these tools are especially useful for moving beyond obstacles that block progress to achieving goals. Based on practices, participants will be more effective in leadership roles because they will be able to detect commonalities and conflicts within a system of people and intentionally influence the direction and actions of a group.

One day of the summer school will be devoted to the supervisors meeting and to the students presentations. Each student will have a slot of 30 minutes (with 5 minutes for questions) for presenting his/her work.
