The INCASI network is created for cooperation in research as well as for postgraduate training. It is an objective of this project to design a postgraduate study program on the analysis of social inequalities in a comparative perspective.

During the project, and from the experience of the training program of the Master of Applied Social Research Techniques (TISA), an advanced training in methods and techniques of social research will be offered to the researchers through the “Diploma Of Postgraduate Methodology for the analysis of social inequalities (MADES) “that will be given in online format with the following contents:
