Announcing the Systems Science for Social Impact, a Summer Training Institute at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis

We are proud to announce the Systems Science for Social Impact Summer Training Institute, to be held at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis, from July 29 to August 2. The co-organizers and principal faculty are Ross Hammond, Douglas Luke, and Peter Hovmand.

The 5-day workshop will train up to 45 participants in systems science methods that enhance the social impact of health and social science research. The workshops are designed for advanced graduate students, recent graduates, professionals, and faculty from public health, social work, and social sciences. The Institute will focus on three major systems science methods: agent-based modeling, social network analysis, and system dynamics.

Each trainee will select one track, while having ample opportunities to interact with participants, instructors, and outside experts across tracks. The application process is open, and we will accept candidates on a rolling basis.
