Postponement of the Bordeaux Summer Schools program 2020

As a result of the ongoing sanitary crisis with the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Bordeaux announces the postponement of the 2020 edition of the Bordeaux Summer Schools until 2021. The current situation means that the program cannot be organized while respecting the health and safety of its participants, nor can it propose a high-quality educational environment, as initially promised. Additionally, many of the Bordeaux Summer School speakers are now participating in research and innovation programs that have been launched to fight the pandemic as well as its socio-economic effects. Such programs will be a priority for the University of Bordeaux in the coming months.

Please note that our summer school websites will be updated as soon as possible with further details regarding this postponement.

We thank you for your understanding and hope to see you in Bordeaux in 2021.

Designed for postgraduate students and young researchers, summer school courses are drawn from across the university and taught by our leading faculty members.
