Proposals for these training modules are examined by the MPS executive board, and selected on the basis of the audience targeted, proposed topic, costs, date of the event, etc. Proposals have to be submitted at least a year in advance to the MPS executive board. Financial requirements have to meet CUSO standards. These activities are open to participants outside of the programme, although MPS doctoral students do have priority.


In parallel, the CUSO also offers "Generic Skills" workshops in management, communication, professional planning, etc...
