Dear all

first of all, apologies for cross-posting but the available travel grants
are a good opportunity, imho.

There are still two days to apply for the Training School "On the
collaborative economy. Learning from critical perspectives" that will take
place in Madeira from the 20th to the 24th of November.

The TS combines contributions from design, social sciences, and literature,
in an effort to provide PhD students and early career researchers with the
coordinates to frame research and design projects related to the
collaborative economy in a wide perspective. It does so by mixing lectures
by established academics and hands-on activities to critically interrogate
platform capitalism and to learn about research strategies for
investigating and promoting the collaborative economy. Lecturing and
hands-on activities will be complemented by group discussions, moderated by
instructors, on the research projects of the participants in order to
stimulate a lively intellectual exchange among the participants.

Participants coming from countries participating in the COST Action
CA16121, "From Sharing to Caring: Examining Socio-Technical Aspects of the
Collaborative Economy", whose applications for participation are accepted,
may receive financial contribution in the form of a COST Trainee Grant up
to €550 per person (for a maximum of 26 participants). This will support
the cost of travel, accommodation and meals. There are no participation

Deadline for application is August 11th, 2017. You can find more
