Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


COST IS0801, like all COST Actions, provided many opportunities for the training of early career researchers and initiation of new research projects. Some of these were supported by short-term visits of usually one or two weeks, up to a maximum of three months, by an Action member to another venue, for purposes that supported the overall aims of the Action. The rst part of this chapter provides some description of these, illustrated by a number of case studies. The second part of the chapter overviews the organization and outcome of two Training Schools for early career researchers, one in Australia entitled ‘Research to Policy and Practice: Innovation and Sustainability in Cyberbullying Prevention’, and one in Finland, entitled ‘Adolescents and Social Media: Guidelines and Coping Strategies for Cyberbullying’. The organization of these Training Schools, the educational approaches used, and their evaluation and impact, will be summarized.
