ECREA EUROPEAN MEDIA AND COMMUNICATION DOCTORAL SUMMER SCHOOL
The main objective of the Summer School is to provide a strong and supportive learning environment for PhD students, fostering respectful but critical dialogue between students and senior academics. The Summer School aims to provide innovative mutual support for doctoral studies in the field of media and communication and to connect students to activities of European Communication Research and Education Association and its Sections, Temporary Working Goroups and Networks.
The Summer School provides a supportive international setting where doctoral students can present their ongoing work, receive feedback on their PhD-projects and establish valuable academic contacts for the future.

Throughout this time, ECREA was an affiliated partner of the Summer School.
