The workshop, set in Domaine de Chalès (2h away from Paris), assembles free spirited students and researchers from broad scientific backgrounds to conceive creative projects at the interface with Life Sciences. This year combined newcomer students of the FdV PhD program, 2nd year AIV and Foster master program, and hosted students of the 1st year AIV and Foster master programs on Friday. The CIRP workshop provides the primary basis for collegiality and communication through dialogue and brainstorming on open questions in Life Sciences.
