VERN’ is a partner at the international seminar “Utilizing Big Data and the Social and Policy Sciences”
The phenomenon of digital connectivity is increasingly transforming the way humans interact and deal with problems of collective action. Such a paradigmatic change is expanding the frontiers of research in terms of theories, methods and analysis. Considering this context, faculty from Mississippi State University, George Mason University, the University of Zagreb, the University of Split and the VERN’ University of Applied Sciences at Zagreb will lead a week-long seminar on Big Data and Social Sciences – “Utilizing Big Data and the Social and Policy Sciences“.
Seminar will take place at the University of Split in Split, Croatia, and at the International University center VERN’ on the island of Vis – VERN' Island School.
The seminar consists of a series of sessions that will be organized in Split in which participants will engage with lecturers to learn and discuss research on big data in social sciences, while on the island of Vis will be organized a series of workshops on big data and innovative methods. Participants will have the opportunity to gather knowledge from pertinent case study and learn updated methodologies for data analysis.
