UnivEarthS Fall School


Since 2014, UnivEarthS organizes an autumn school that brings together about 30 students during a week during a special place.

The positive returns from this week of school are an encouragement to continue the mission of Labex: bring together researchers from different disciplines, and create interfaces between Earth Sciences and Physics of the Universe. Indeed, it is through this kind of event that UnivEarthS promotes interdisciplinarity and the connection between its various research areas.

You can read the themes and consult the supports provided by professors and students on this page.
