This summer school in ecology and integrative biology, in English, is part of the TULIP Labex training program. It is aimed at students from master II to Post-doctoral researchers. It consists in plenary sessions and workshops and the program covers all aspects of the interactions between organisms from a sharp point of view in biology to a more holistic one, characteristic of an ecology approach.

Selected students will have the opportunity to:

  • Take an active part in research projects in these scientific fields,
  • Meet the experts of Toulouse and international researchers from all around the world,
  • Enjoy a pleasant setting in the Pyrenees

Accommodation and meals are provided; the participants only have to pay for the transportation to Toulouse. To make discussion easier, the summer school is limited to 25 students.

Thereafter, the next summer school will cover a variety of topics including the following examples:

  • Plant-Microbe Interactions,
  • Evolutionary ecology,
  • Career and research applications in Environmental Economics,
  • Subject of Ethics: Epistemology and Biology.

The two first summer school TULIP entitled "From genes to ecosystems" took place in the French Pyrenees, in a magnificent setting at the foot of the Pic du Midi de Bigorre, at the “Domaine de Ramonjuan”.

This first edition has validated a formula combining lessons and workshops. On the one hand, the mornings were devoted to plenary sessions. These parts gave a wide place, because of the small size of the group, to discussions among researchers and students. On the other hand, afternoons and evenings were dedicated to workshops. Students, divided in small groups mixing both biologists and ecologists and supervised throughout the week by researchers or professors, had the opportunity to generate an experimental project, experience that they qualified as "particularly rewarding." In fact, the originality of TULIP - integrating the concepts of biology and ecology - was applied to this summer school. Students have to go out of their original context and to broaden their skills by working on these two major scientific fields.

The second and third edition gave the opportunity to improve the way to teach such scientific fields thanks to the so called "project based learning".
