Training & Awards


Training of researchers is an essential task of the Network. By pooling the resources and expertise of its partners and members, IMISCOE facilitates the highest quality training for all Network members. It also makes long-term investments in the broader field by opening its training facilities to non-members. To this aim, the Network organizes annual winter- or summer schools for PhD's, as well as specific training modules at other IMISCOE events.

Also, IMISCOE annual awards two prizes to promote the quality of work done in the context of IMISCOE:

  • The Maria Ioannis Baganha Award for the best PhD Thesis in the field of migration, integration and social cohesion in Europe.
  • The Rinus Penninx Award for best paper presented at the annual IMISCOE conference.
