Short courses

The interuniversity doctoral school provides an advanced training in the different areas of theoritical and applied methods used in statistics/actuarial sciences and is hence highly interdisciplinary.
This training is achieved by:
> regular short courses, given by visiting professors from abroad and internationally recognized experts in their field
> summer schools
