International summer schools
Objective: supporting the development of a summer school offering and promoting Bordeaux expertise internationally.
Support is provided to summer schools with a high international profile (specific lecturers and students), a socio-economic slant and a sustainable economic model.
The Bordeaux Summer School (BSS) accreditation was developed to support international summer schools based on the following criteria:
- the highly international scope of the school (lecturers and target audience)
- the added value of the courses provided (recognized through a certification)
- rooting in Bordeaux' research of excellence
- multi-disciplinary dimension
- involvement of young researchers from the site
- opening-up to professional audiences
- sustainable economic model
Existing projects and projects in the design phase wishing to apply for this accreditation are invited to fill in and return the project data sheet as well as the budget estimate using the BSS accreditation guide.
Be careful : the Bordeaux summer school program is rewriting during the 2017 year. Acceptability criterions will change very soon.

VIU PhD Academy Application
Submit here your application to participate to the PhD Academy Global challenges series: WATER, organized in Venice from May 8th to 13th 2017.
Application open until February 28.
The University of Bordeaux coordinates the World challenges series of PhD Academies, within the framework of the Venice International University (VIU – network of 18 universities from USA, Canada, Japan, China, Switzerland, Russia, Israël, Germany, Belgium, Italy, France). The first Global Challenge proposed for 2017 relates to the issue of WATER, addressing different aspects: ecological, ecotoxicological, economical, sociological, cultural, political, juridical, public health. The Venice lagoon was selected as a case-study site: the Italian research institutions involved (Ca’ Foscari and Padova universities, Università luav di Venezia, CNR/ISMAR, CORILA consortium, …) will present during one day conferences and visits on boat of different sites the current state of knowledge from an integrated and multidisciplinary point of view.
PhD students will be recruited, emphasizing the diversity of curriculum, from areas ranging from the humanities and social sciences to science and technology sectors, including health.
Applicants must submit the application form, a covering letter – which should include a brief description of the candidate’s PhD research project, a curriculum vitae and a photo.
The seats’ number is limited; all costs will be taken in charge (transport, accommodation in San Servolo Island).
The fields marked with an asterisk are compulsory.

- COTE summer school 2015 "Ecology and society: biodiversity and global change" - Neurepiomics, first summer school in neuroepidemiology in France
An extensive training program on advanced brain imaging techniques and familiarization with "omics" tools and their applications in epidemiology of vascular and brain aging was proposed during the Neurepiomics summer school. Various subjects were dealt with, from data acquisition to future needs specific to each topic. The latter, which was addressed through various forms of teaching, enabled adaptation to the knowledge of each participant, and thus to address the needs of as many as possible. Launched by Prof. Stéphanie Debette and Prof. Christophe Tzourio of the University of Bordeaux, Neurepiomics was organized in close collaboration with Prof. Sudha Seshadri of Boston University. Following the partnership established with the latter, the next summer school of this type will take place in 2016 in Boston, with the assistance of two...
