Welcome to the Doctoral Program in Earth Surface Processes & Paleobiosphere.

IMPORTANT: Covid-19 coronavirus epidemic:

The evolution of the CoVID-19 (coronavirus) epidemic and the measures taken by the authorities lead us to suspend all CUSO program "real life" activities for the entire spring semester. Each programme will endeavour to reschedule planned activities at a later date, once the situation has subsided, but in any case not before August. Some activities may be offered online. Please also check the websites of the other programs. Thank you for your collaboration and understanding.
