COMING SOON! Please check back for the announcement of dates for the
2nd annual (2020) Systems Science for Social Impact Summer Institute!
The 1st annual Systems Science for Social Impact Summer Training Institute was a success!
Researchers, evaluators and governmental administrators from around the U.S. and the world came to the Brown School July 29-August 2, 2019 for training in systems science and how it can be applied to enhance social impact.
The Institute was a week-long program that aimed to begin training the next generation of health and social science scholars in systems science methods. The 33 participants received training in either agent-based modeling, system dynamics, or social networks, as well as their application.
Participants became familiar with major concepts, learned analytic best practices, and applied the methods to real-world data. They also had opportunities to interact with each other, instructors, and outside experts across tracks.
