‘International Conference on Research in Social Science: Troubles and Trends in Research’

15-16 January 2022, Sillamäe, Estonia



Despite many advances in the discipline, worries concerning problematic tendencies remain pertinent, as social science researchers observe that research trends are evolving quantitatively, qualitatively, or in other ways. Researchers are required to adhere to international standards for research activities on the one hand, as their work is a component of scientific discourse; on the other hand, the freedom of scientific activity has introduced new challenges to the contemporary democratic scientific world, necessitating the development of adequate methodological responses. These changes have resulted in the scientific community being subjected to subpar research and uncompetitive scientific products that suffocate intellectual markets. Thus, it is important to equip and expand research on such specialized themes, particularly from contemporary or traditional points of view, in order to get comprehensive knowledge and critical insights.


Now, the 'International Conference on Research in Social Science: Troubles and Trends in Research' invites practitioners and academics doing research in the social science to present their work and to engage with the scientific community. European College of Polytechnics and its affiliated partners are organizing this academic event with the aim of connecting the trends in/of research from a continental perspective and bringing together academics from across the world to engage in constructive scholarly discussion on a variety of research-related problematic issues.
