Summer School


Title: Multi- and interdisciplinary research on wellbeing at work

Language: English

Level: Academic Master is a prerequisite

Target group: PhD students whose research relates (in the broad sense) to wellbeing at work. The Summer School is recognized by the Doctoral Schools at Ghent University as a specialist course in the Doctoral Training Programme.

Abstract: Few topics are studied in so many disciplines as wellbeing at work. Therefore, to thoroughly answer research questions related to wellbeing at work, it is necessary to surpass a merely monodisciplinary approach. In the UGent @ Work Summer School, participants from multiple disciplines will (i) be immersed in the literature on wellbeing at work by means of multidisciplinary seminars by internationally renowned experts, (ii) draw up an original, interdisciplinary research proposal in collaboration with another participant from another discipline, and (iii) attend a public event with HR practitioners which will stress the importance of research on wellbeing at work in practice.
