SRAM Professional Development Workshops
In Europe and elsewhere, there is a rising demand for skilled graduates in multi-country, multi-language survey research. A growing number of clients – both in corporations and in government – require the support and collaboration of people with the expertise to identify and interpret complex political, social and economic challenges of a global nature through survey research. To answer this need, The University of Siena and TNS opinion have launched the SRAM Professional Development Workshops designed for graduate students, professionals (e.g. pollsters, journalists, think tank specialists, freelancers), and civil servants who seek cutting-edge training in this field. These are one-week intensive workshops designed for those seeking to complement their prior academic or professional experience with added dimensions of expertise dealing with specific aspects of multi-country survey research: sampling, questionnaire design, analysis techniques as well as survey planning and management in a multi-country environment. Participating professionals can also benefit from ongoing SRAM/ CIRCaP activities at the Centre during their stay in Siena. Through the range of workshops on offer, professionals can tailor their training to fit their career development objectives in survey research.
