Summer school format

The Summer School has an innovative format: it is Research-Centred, with a strong focus on mini-projects of month-long duration, carried out by multiple teams of 3-4 students including a mix of academic levels (Postdoc, PhD, undergraduates). Selected seminars and lectures will also take place; but not exceeding two hours per day. Exciting cultural events and excursions will take place during the weekends. The outcome of the summer school includes both numerous scientific publications, as well as longer-term collaborations.
