The Media Literacy and Civic Cultures (MeLCi Lab) Autumn School *“Science bootcamp to improve research hands-on skills”*, to be held *24th to 29th November 2021*, aims to capacitate PhD students with a set of hands-on research skills that help them in their projects, supporting their professional development. The school will include keynotes from *Emiliano Treré*, *Julian McDougall*, *Kaska Porayska-Pomsta*, and *Pille Pruulmann-Vengerfeldt*. By adopting an integrative and multidisciplinary approach, the School will bring together several scholars for a set of workshops and communications to foster research skills related to scientific writing and innovative methodologies. We will address topics about civic engagement, arts-based research, participation, citizen science, datafication, and ethics research. Moreover, the school also intends to be a space for the production of tangible outcomes, through its *“72h Paper Development Marathon”*. MeLCi Autumn School intends to be an inclusive space, and three equity grants will be available for students from underrepresented communities.
