  • However, there is the possibility of collaborating with other specialists (in medicine, pharmacy, or dental surgery) or other disciplines (biology, biotechnology, nutrition, genetics, etc.).
  • The submission must be made via the form provided on the dedicated website, which will be communicated later.
  • The project submission form must include:
    1. The project title (topic).
    2. A brief description of the project (in less than 10 lines, present what is currently known about the topic and end with the research question).

  • Multi or transdisciplinary topics are strongly encouraged.

Stage 3: Training Workshops

Selected students will benefit from:

  • Coaching for their research projects throughout all stages of the research process: from idea to publication.
  • Participation in several training workshops according to the phases of the research process: One workshop per month at the headquarters of the Center of Excellence in Writing (UC3).
  • The training content will be adapted to the selected topics and types of studies.
  • Assistance in publishing the final research project document: both oral and written.

Duration of the Training
