Mobility scheme

BioHC Master Course is a one year MSc, followed at two different Partner universities, that will be both in charge of awarding credits (30:30 ECTS), and two Master degrees to the student. Each year, the courses start by the attendance to the BioHC Summer School, including an Interactive Training Initiative (ITI). During this ITI, introductory conferences are given by internationally recognize scientists on Systems medicine and Bioengineering, and students are invited to work together to solve a R&D problem submitted by an industrial partner. At the end of the Master Courses, the student come back to the BioHC Summer School for Conference Talks (CT), Thesis Defense (TD) and Partnering Event (PE). The BioHC Scientific Committee invite each year senior investigators from industries to present conferences (CT), and MSc students to defend their Master thesis (TD), exhibiting their findings in Systems medicine. The aim of the PE is to gather academic, medical and industrial partners interested in building technology partnerships. This event focuses on applied research results from academia and new medical or pharmaceutical technologies developed by companies in the fields of the BioHC programme. The Master Courses start and finish by a Summer School gathering all the students in the BioPark of Archamps-Genève Technopole. During the first semester, students take Advanced Courses in scientific fields depending on their previous degree: Clinical Research, Environmental and Animal Health, Molecular Biotechnology and Computational Mathematics. The second semester is dedicated to a nine months Joint Research Project, associating two students coming from two different scientific fields to solve a unique problem. Organized each year under the responsibility of the Consortium’s Scientific Committee, the BioHC Summer School brings together students teaching staffs, scientists and medical professionals from across the Europe, to present and discuss research and clinical findings in all phases of “bentch to bedside” process. Between two Summer School (year n and n+1), students follow a mobility scheme providing for at least two stages in two partner universities involved in the same study track.
