「Best Poster Award 2018」

BEST POSTER AWARD OF THE BAMBERG GRADUATE SCHOOL OF SOCIAL SCIENCES

__ In light of the Scientific Advisory Council Meeting, the Graduate School organised a poster competition for its students. A group of our doctoral fellows participated in the competition and presented posters depicting their respective research topic and progress to a jury. The posters illustrate the highly diverse spectrum of projects that our doctoral fellows are researching and reflect the multidisciplinary spirit and atmosphere of the Graduate School. Our students truly encompass the School's staple manifests. Their empirical, theory-driven research projects focus on real-world problems of knowledge-based societies and surmount traditional boundaries.

The majority of students supervise and conduct their own data collection but some of our students also work in collaboration with major data collection institutes and centres. For example, data derived from the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) forms the basis for several research projects. The study is carried out by the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi) at the University of Bamberg. It is run by an interdisciplinary network led by Prof. Dr. Sabine Weinert, one of our supervisors. The target activity of the NEPS is to collect longitudinal data on the development of competencies, educational processes, educational decisions, and returns to education in formal, nonformal, and informal contexts throughout the life span. In addition, the Federal Statistical Office provides data collected during the annual microcensus. The microcensus offers not only hard data on the population level, but also aids population projections. For international information, the European Social Survey (ESS) makes its data available to our doctoral fellows. The ESS is a biennial cross-national survey of attitudes and behaviour and uses cross-sectional, probability samples which are representative of all persons aged 15 and over resident within private households in each country.

Congratulations to the three winners of the competition, namely:
Christopher Kearney, Regine Schmidt, David Schmuck
