Лятна школа

Международна лятна школа по когнитивна наука

 

Целта на лятното училище е да осигури интердисциплинарно обучение на млади професори, изследователи, докторанти и студенти, които да преподават и да се занимават с изследвания в областта на когнитивната наука. Участниците се интересуват и работят в различни области на когнитивната наука като психология, лингвистика, философия, невронауки, компютърни системи, антропология. Лятното училище предлага на своите участници възможност да работят в екипи със световноизвестни учени, да се запознаят лично с новостите, навлезли в различните области на тази интересна и предизвикателна наука и да добият представа как се преподава когнитивна наука. За да завършат някои от курсовете те трябва да изготвят проекти по зададена тема. Като резултат се очаква участниците да разширят курсовете си в университетите, които преподават и да включват свои студенти в изследователски проекти. Това ще подпомогне създаването на екипи, занимаващи се когнитивна наука в Централна и Източна Европа и ще заздрави когнитивната общност като цяло.
