IRIXYS Young Scientists’ Workshops : digital sessions in June-July 2020!

We will not wait until our PhD students are allowed to travel and meet each other again!” This is what the IRIXYS steering committee decided within a digital meeting earlier this Spring aimed at discussing how to keep the IRIXYS cooperation alive in the frame of the Corona pandemic. As a consequence, although the Summer IRIXYS Young Scientists’ Workshop initially planned to take place in Biarritz had to be cancelled, the PhD students, research staff and professors from the four IRIXYS institutions . Pau University, INSA Lyon, Milan University and Passau University will discuss each others’ latest research findings in the frame of 4 visio-conferences taking place in June and July 2020. An appetizer for the next IRIXYS young scientists meeting, planned to take place in France in Autumn.

Here is the full program. You may access the workshop via Zoom (Zoom link:
