QICSS School

QICSS school is at the heart of the activities offered by the QICSS to support the training of highly qualified personnel. Our offer has diversified over the years to include training during the summer but also throughout the year. Training is structured around three areas aimed at improving the skills and knowledge of the people who participate in them: familiarizing themselves with different analysis methods; better master the software and other tools used; and discover the content and analytical potential of new datasets available at QICSS.
