This Bordeaux Summer School offers participants the unique opportunity to discover methods and concepts in neuroscience research through hands-on training within the premises of the Bordeaux School of Neuroscience. Graduate and doctoral students from various disciplines will follow case-based teaching by taking part in mini-projects supervised by experienced doctoral students and international experts in neuroscience, covering questions and techniques used in modern neuroscience research laboratories. Topics covered will include: Cell biology and imaging Molecular and cellular biology, transcriptomics In vivo surgery, gene transfer Anatomy, brain clearing, connectomics and electron microscopy In vitro electrophysiology and optogenetics In vivo electrophysiology and imaging Behavior Human neuroscience Neurocomputation Upon completion, this project-based summer school will allow participants to: Better understand basic experimental approaches in neuroscience research Directly perform the experiments Strengthen their international scientific network
This summer school is organized within the framework of collaborations between the University of Bordeaux, the French-Australian research networkon Conversion and Energy Storage for stand-alone and maritime applications (IRN-FACES), and the Québec Center for Advanced Materials (QCAM). Research in the field of renewable energies has greatly intensified due to decreasing fossil energy resources and an increase in greenhouse gas concentration (in particular carbon dioxide). Throughout this Bordeaux Summer School, open to graduate and doctoral students, the problems linked to the collection of renewable energies (photovoltaic, wind, etc.), their transformation (hydrogen production, etc.) and their storage (supercapacitors, batteries, etc.) will be analyzed. Issues related to the systems needing to be implemented for such procedures with renewable energies will also be covered.
Environmental Engineering - Renewable Energy Sources (45 hours of instruction, 5 ECTS) Students gain an extensive overview of environmental engineering issues not only from a local perspective but also from a German and a European perspective. This multifaceted approach allows students to look into different aspects of the subjects concerned and to develop their own research focus. The different topics include Wind Energy, Photovoltaics, Solar Thermal Systems, Low Energy Housing, Geothermal Energy, Bioenergy, Hdyro Power and more. Further details can be found on our program website. German Language Course (30 hours of instruction, 3 ECTS) In addition to the academic seminars, all students attend intensive German language courses. These courses are offered at three different levels (from beginners to advanced).
This Bordeaux Summer School is designed for graduate and doctoral students from the fields of electrical engineering, computer science, data science and applied mathematics, and who have an interest in the topic of the Internet of Things and its environmental and societal impacts. Throughout the program, renowned and dynamic speakers will share their insight on the latest advances and applications of the Internet of Things technology as a driver for innovative digital infrastructures. Course content covers a wide scope of themes, including: Radio communications Communication techniques Data processing Machine learning Deep learning Hands-on tutored workshops complement the theoretical sessions, enabling participants to design, create and program a connected object of their choice. Seminars on applications in e-health, energy harvesting, intelligent transport systems, etc. will conclude each day.
