This online Bordeaux Summer School is organized within the framework of bilateral collaborations between the University of Bordeaux and the University of Niigata (Japan). Promoting joint scientific activities in sakeology and oenology, it is open to graduate students, doctoral students, researchers and professionals. The current scientific, technical and economic issues facing the wine and sake industries will be presented by experts, who will also outline current research questions and new evolutions for these disciplines. Tutored work sessions will allow participants to develop research ideas for project proposals in their areas of expertise.
This online Bordeaux Summer School, organized by the University of Bordeaux and the French National Institute for Agronomy and Environment (INRAe), provides participants with scientific insight regarding French agricultural challenges vis à vis environmental issues such as climate change and food safety. It is open to first and second year Master students with a background in biology. During the two week session, students learn in a variety of ways thanks to: practical sessions; experiences of agricultural reality; exchanges with pioneering scientists in the fields of life sciences and agriculture. The program aims to decipher the strategies that have been developed to identify and exploit stress responses and to manage the growing practices that tackle abiotic and biotic stress. Course content will focus on major challenges encountered by the agricultural industry, such as confronting climate change and maintaining both the yield and quality of agro-food productions. A variety of crops will be studied, such as tomatoes, strawberries, grapevines, carrots, leeks, pine and oak trees.
The 6th edition of this summer school is open to graduate and doctoral students specializing in neuroepidemiology, as well as post-doctoral fellows and senior researchers who wish to further their knowledge in this domain. Course content provides extensive training in cutting-edge research methods with a specific focus on advanced brain imaging and novel “omics” tools, and their application in epidemiology of vascular and brain aging. The program consists of 5 half-day sessions of distance training, and will propose interactive content. Alternating thematic and methodological interventions from internationally recognized speakers, learning outcomes of this summer school include: The latest in modern epidemiology of the most common neurological diseases In-depth description of innovative, high-dimensional MRI markers of brain aging in large population-based cohort studies Advanced brain imaging and novel “omics” tools, and their application in epidemiology of vascular and brain aging Large-scale genomic approaches (GWAS, Exome and Whole genome sequencing approaches), as well as epigenomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics approaches for neurological diseases Systems biology and translational approaches Single cell RNA sequencing Challenges and opportunities of planning new cohort studies and biobanks in the “omics” era Hands-on analysis and visualization of omics data and advanced brain imaging One-on-one collaboration with experts from around the world An editor’s guide for submitting papers on neuroepidemiology with large-scale imaging and omics data for peer reviewed journals Ethical considerations
In this unique 2-week program you and a group of internationally-oriented students will examine cultural diversity from a psychological perspective, which includes theoretical insights as well as hands-on experiences (practice sessions and presentations). The course concluded with you conducting an interview with someone of another culture, and writing a report on your findings to show that you can effectively communicate about diversity-related topics. During this interactive two-week course you will: Acquire an overview of the current leading perspectives on cross-cultural similarities and differences, acculturation, and intercultural communication; Assess and apply strategies useful for intercultural interaction in business and negotiations, and for effective intercultural communication; Conduct a small-scale qualitative, culturally informed, psychological study on a topic of your choice; Understand how methodological pitfalls and cognitive biases are relevant for cross-cultural interactions and intercultural communication in the multicultural workplace and other settings.
