Major funding obtained

For a project titled “ACCORds: Advancing Configurational Comparative Research Methods”, Alrik Thiem has been awarded a Swiss National Science Foundation Professorship, funded with 1.4 million Swiss Francs. This project aims to enhance the functionality of configurational methods such as QCA and CNA, to address broader theoretical and epistemological questions, and to develop corresponding software in order to make all advances publicly available to the scientific community. As part of ACCORds, Alrik Thiem is also welcoming suggestions from applied researchers to collaborate on empirical work in any area. More information can be found on Alrik Thiem’s website. We congratulate Alrik on this achievement!
