MRInference: from data to knowledge
The general aim of the Winter School was to present modern statistical approaches to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data analysis. Nowadays we are facing a revolution in MRI analysis and the questioned solidity of previous results needs stronger attention to analysis methods. The present winter school has a practical approach in order to bring methodological instruments to improve the solidity of daily research workflows.

Beyond p < .05: Modern statistical approaches in psychological science
The idea of the course is based on the recent debate concerning the crisis of reproducibility and replicability in scientific research. We tackled these issues by presenting recent perspectives that aim to increase researchers’ sensitivity and critical thinking in the use of statistics in psychological science. Activities included both main  lectures and workshops for Ph.D. students, post-doctoral research fellows and early career scholars coming from different countries.
