Systems Science for Social Impact Summer Training Institute

  • July 27 – 31, 2020
  • Brown School, Washington University in St. Louis

At this 5-day Summer Training Institute, participants will get a hands-on introduction to systems science methods that enhance the social impact of health and social science research. Led by experienced systems science scholars, this in-depth training institute will focus on four major systems science methods: Agent-based Modeling, Group Model Building, Social Network Analysis, and System Dynamics. Participants will review the major concepts of their chosen track/method, learn analytic best practices, and apply the methods to real-world data.

The workshops are designed for faculty, advanced graduate students, recent graduates, and professionals from public health, social work, and social sciences.

Space permitting, applications will be accepted until the start of class. Registration will be available for accepted applicants on a rolling basis.

Enrollment is limited to 15 students per track.
