Training & Education

This page is still under construction, but in the future we will list all upcoming training opportunities, such as summer schools, workshops and masterclasses. Moreover, our aim to also make training materials available online with some documentation.

If you have any training materials for students about how to learn historical demographic research which you are willing to share, please let us know.
