The main objective of the course is to provide support and research skill training to research internship students. The training includes research project planning, research project monitoring, research collaborations, scientific fraud, data management, advances in research communication, and a discussion of open versus traditional science. We will also discuss the different possibilities of careers in research (university, business, government, communication...), the methods by which to obtain funding for research, and effective methods to apply for a research post.
Teaching methods
Evaluation methods
The modality of the evaluation involves two complementary parts:
  1. The simulation of making a candidature for a research post.
  2. The creation of a research proposal for an application of funding.
The first part must be made in English, while the second part can be either in French or English. The evaluation will involve written and oral modalities. Both evaluations are worth 50% of the total grade. The final mark will consist of the two integrated parts. Successful completion of these two parts is essential to demonstrate the skills and knowledge defined in the learning outcomes of the course. Successful completion of the course can only be achieved by passing each of the assessment parts/activities
