Learning outcomes This research seminar is organized around projects in progress at research centers or international networks associated with them. The sessions are organized in three modules. The 1st module aims to provide to PhD students access to sources of information and develop capacities to select information according to the objects of research. The 2nd module focuses on the apprehension and assessment of methodological tools that allow PhD students the design of individual projects and the choice of the most appropriate methodologies. In the 3rd module students evaluate their own individual projects and the ones of their colleagues, taking into account the expected results, the acquis of knowledge, social value, potential economic and industrial application.
Syllabus i) Sources of information (organized and non-organized): research in bibliographic data bases, organization of libraries online to support individual research, observation processes for the selective identification of potential sources non-organized of information and identification and systematization of indicators;
ii) Project design and identification of methodological tools: the students evaluate projects in progress and propose their individual projects based on categories such as relevance and justification, theoretical frameworks, research issues, methodologies and results; results validation;
iii) Contribution of research to the field's knowledge and society: the student is invited to identify the original aspects of their research, as well as the contributions coming from other research in order to expand theoretical knowledge, improve social benefits, quality of democracy and citizenship, including the diversity and quality of creative industries, or other contents.
