Bordeaux Summer School - Evolution of French agriculture: strategies to face climate change
This summer school, organised by the University of Bordeaux and the French National Institute for Agronomy and Environment (INRAE), provides participants with scientific insight regarding French agricultural challenges, with a focus on strategies to improve agricultural sustainability in order to address environmental issues such as climate change and food security. It is open to third year Bachelor students as well as first and second year Master students with a background in biology.
During the two week session, students learn in a variety of ways thanks to:
› laboratory and practical sessions;
› experiences of agricultural reality, with visits of research laboratories, farms, fish farms, greenhouses, breeding companies, wine castles, etc.;
› exchanges with pioneering scientists in the fields of life sciences and agriculture.
The participants of the summer school can benefit from the integrative education programme (theoretical classes, practical work and site-visits) to discover current and future challenges in French agriculture. Moreover, mix of local and international students provides further insights into agricultural and cultural diversity.
