Flanders’ Training Network for Methodology and Statistics (FLAMES)




FLAMES is an inter-university doctoral training network in which all five Flemish universities collaborate. It provides a structural, accessible, broad and high quality course offer for young researchers needing methodological and statistical insight and skills. Capitalizing on complementary expertise it builds synergies and turns competition into collaboration to optimize available training and leverage science. We develop modules for basic, complex and advanced data analysis, organize a yearly two week summer school and workshops on demand. Our co-taught courses travel the country. We will share 6 years of experience with the new model for collaboration sponsored by government, carried by faculty and coordinators from various disciplines in the different universities. We hope to learn from similar international experiments to build a network that can reach further.
