Intended Audience

This cross-border and trans-disciplinary workshop is intended for doctoral candidates in the participating university institutions who have already completed one year of their doctorate. 

The workshop will take place in French and in English, following the choices of the participants.

A certificate of attendance will be provided by the CUSO transversal programme to participants from its member institutions. Any eventual validation of participation for credits will be at the decision of the institution and/or faculty to which the participant is attached.


Participation in this workshop is entirely free for doctoral candidates.

Hotel and meals on site will be provided. Transportation costs (CFF, 1/2 fare, 2nd class) from the town of the participant's home university will be reimbursed by the CUSO.

Five places are available for doctoral candidates registered in a member or partner institution of the CUSO. In case of heavy demand, priority will be given to members of the CUSO doctoral programmes.

Applicants must commit to the three days of activities: from arrival in Archamps at around 12 noon on Wednesday 20th September, two night's stay in the Best Western Hotel at the Technopole in a shared, twin room, and until departure at around 1.30 p.m. on Friday 22nd September.

The Technopole Archamps is located approximately one hour by public transport from Geneva railway station.
