Events and training courses

All master’s and PhD students on the graduate programme are invited to take part in these events.



Every year in October

The aim of this event is to welcome students from the graduate programme and outline the scientific topics covered by the programme via interdisciplinary conferences. Workshops to facilitate student integration and help them meet one another and sessions with poster presentations are also held as part of this event. The seminar run at the beginning of the academic year is a wonderful event to bring master’s and doctoral students, lecturers and researchers together. 

Next event : mid-October 2022


Late afternoon every 2 months

These informal events give participants the chance to meet with a professional working in their area and discuss their academic and professional background. They are a wonderful opportunity for master’s and doctoral students on the programme to begin to look ahead to their own careers.
