Doctoral Seminar

All doctoral students are given a regular opportunity to present an update on the progress of their research in a seminar. These meetings allow the institute’s professors and other doctoral students to provide their input and feedback by making comments and proposing improvements.

Research seminars usually take place at lunchtime and are open to the public. They consist in a follow-up (lasting 45 minutes) or a preliminary thesis meeting (lasting 60 to 90 minutes). At the end of preliminary thesis meeting, the public are asked to leave the room so that the thesis jury can deliberate in private.

The research seminar programme is available below. Please note that the seminar will be presented and discussed in the language of the thesis’s title.
