Target group

Doctoral Winter School is an online programme with courses intended for PhD students, post-docs, academics and professionals from different areas and all around the world.

Course aim

The purpose of this intensive course is to present the basics of data production and analysis, i.e. the main concepts and methods for the production, processing and analysis of data (as an input and an output of a model) to understand and describe phenomena and subsequently
forecasting or estimation procedures. This course does not focus on the mathematical foundations of statistical methods or models, but on a scientific methodological approach for the global process of data production and analysis (defining objectives, identifying the sample/population to enquire, collecting or estimating data, processing those data for the given objectives, analysing them and interpreting the results, to finally relating the given outputs to the searched reality), applicable to different research and scientific fields.
