Our CREATE Summer School

Join Us for the Next Summer School!


As part of its added value training, the CREATE-CFS program organizes every year a summer school, which welcomes students, faculty members and industrial partners (f interested) to hone complementary skills that will be valuable in the course fo their career. It is also an ideal opportunity to stimulate networking and facilitate cross-disciplinary interactions among trainees.

The school, which usually spans over two (2) days, combines various learning components: short tutorials from experts in soft skills fields as well as mini results presentations by students in a format accessible to all disciplines. Participation is mandatory for all CREATE members.
