Since 2008, EARA and SRA have jointly organized Summer Schools, which are training grounds for young scholars interested in adolescent development. Originally held by EARA, the Summer Schools have been a tradition since 2001 with generous funding by the Johan Jacobs Foundation. The Summer Schools bring together established researchers, recognized for their expertise and teaching abilities with doctoral students from around the globe for five, intensive days of research training. The training includes exposure to innovative and creative research, as well as workshops focusing on professional skills. The summer schools have given students enthusiasm to search for scientific guidance outside of the borders of their countries and the walls of their universities.
In 2013, the Summer School will be held in Kent (Ohio), USA from June 16th to June 23rd. The site for the school is Kent State University. The Senior Scholars slated for this year include (in alphabetical order): Deborah Capaldi, Toon Cillessen, W. Andrew Collins, Joanne Davila, Carolyn Tucker Halpern, Patrick Heaven, Geert-Jan Overbeek, Sally Powers, Katariina Salmela-Aro, and Christiane Spiel.
