Call for Applications: 2016 Alliance Doctoral Summer School in Science and Policy

March 28, 2016


Ph.D./Research-based Masters Students


Participation fee: 60 EUR (covers all lunches and refreshments)


Columbia University’s Sustainable Development Doctoral Program and The Alliance Program are organizing a one-week Doctoral Summer School in Paris from June 7 to 14.

The focus of this year's event is on the complex interactions within and across natural, social and political systems. The aim is to better understand these interactions and learn how to incorporate or consider them in research and policymaking. Examples will be drawn from various topics, including public health (e.g. air pollution, infectious diseases) and natural resources management (e.g. fisheries). We welcome applications from graduate students who are interested in these and related topics. With presentations from world-renowned scholars and promising doctoral students, group discussions, and other events, this an excellent opportunity for participants to exchange and generate new research ideas and build academic networks.

Alliance Program is a non-profit transatlantic joint-venture between Columbia University and three prestigious French institutions: the École Polytechnique, Sciences Po, and Panthéon-Sorbonne University.
