Winter School 2015

The doctoral school VariaForMea, supported by the CRUS (Rectors’ conference of the Swiss Universities), is happy to announce the third three-day Winter School in December 2015.

The school schedule will be organised flexibly, combining 4 main talks from two guest speakers,  presentations from PhD students and informal discussions.
