The Assistants

As assistants, we are mainly there to help the participants. We update the textbooks in order to supply additional information and Write the proceedings. When they cannot attend a lecture, we also provide on request a free recording of it. But the most interesting part of our work is of course the scientific research necessary for the publication of the course readings and developing an International " e-database " for CERIS. Being part of Ceris teaching and research assistant' team is a challenging experience. On the one hand we tutor participants coming from various countries and professional fields and on the other we have the oppotunity to assist renowned lecturers drawn from leading European & International Universities.
