Before applying, please check the eligibility criteria below. Then complete the online application form (link below), which will be made available during the application period. At the end of the application period, the conveners will assess all the applications and will contact every applicant with their decision.


Who is the Summer School for?

The ALTER-Net summer schools are open to young graduate and post-graduate scientists from the network partners and universities in Europe. Two participants from developing countries can participate as well. The summer school is limited to 32 participants, who are selected with the goal of achieving an optimal mix among regions, disciplines and gender.

Please note that adequate English skills are required and all participants are expected to present a poster on their own research.

What does it cost?

Participants must cover a part of the cost for the school through a registration fee of €800. This includes all local costs including lectures, meals, refreshments, the field trip and accommodation in double rooms with shared bathrooms.

A small number of support grants to waive part or all of the fee are available for students from developing countries and countries with economies in transition (details available on request: please contact Marie Vandewalle).

Travel costs must be covered by the participants or by their institution.

Survey: What has Peyresq done to you?

During the ALTER-Net Conference 2017, we will bring together Peyresq alumni, and interested early-career researchers, to explore the Peyresq spirit and discuss the contribution of the summer school to their lives and careers.

To prepare the event, we would like to gather information about your connection with the summer school.

If you have been involved in a previous ALTER-Net Summer School, please take part by completing this short survey. Thank you.
