Activities in the DPEE are divided in three basic categories:

  1. Scientific knowledge (K): scientific seminar series, workshops for improvement of scientific knowledge, topic groups, national and international congresses.
  2. Methodological improvement (M): workshops and courses on specific methods and softwares (e.g. statistical or phylogenetic course), scientific exchanges to learn new methods.
  3. Acquisition and reinforcement of skills (S): courses/workshops for reinforcement of expertise (e.g. scientific writing, scientific presentation, developing a grant proposal).

Activities are primarily for PhD students belonging to the DPEE. If there are places available, master students, PhD students, postdocs and academics from CUSO Universities can attend for free but traveling/accommodation expenses cannot be reimbursed.
