Forthcoming Short Course on Combining NCA & QCA

From Jan Dul (Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus Univ):
This year’s online summercourse on Necessary Condition Analysis (NCA) offered by Erasmus Research Institute of Management, Rotterdam, Netherlands is fully booked. Because we had to disappoint many researchers including QCA researchers, we decided to organize in the next few months some a few specialized webinars or short courses about specific NCA topics. One of them will be on combining NCA with QCA. We will discuss differences between NCA and QCA and how NCA can enrich QCA. Please let us know if you are interested by sending an email to nca.communication@erim.eur.nl. As soon as more information is available we will inform you personally about the details.
