Post-Graduate/Doctoral School ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES (ED251)

Director: Jean-Christophe POGGIALE, at the University of Aix Marseille.

Assistant Director: Laurence Vidal, Professor at the University of Aix Marseille.

Secretariat: Isabelle HAMMAD




The Post-Graduate School "for Environmental Sciences" combines the potential for research and training in "pure" sciences involved in the multi-disciplinary field of the Environment across Aix-Marseille.
The hub for the constituent teams is the Sciences of the Universe (56 HDR). However, the associated disciplines within the School of Chemistry (10), Life Sciences and Medicine (78), Engineering Sciences (11) and Human Sciences (20), are also vital.
More so than other fields, the Environment demands systematic cooperation between traditional disciplines, not only for an understanding of "global changes" of natural or anthropogenic origin, but also for the "sustainable management" of resources and waste arising from human activity.

Placing multi-disciplinarity at the heart of the School's projects and operations gives it its originality, as well as its status on the national map. The main topic areas involve Environmental Geosciences, Oceanography, Ecology, Environmental Chemistry, Process Engineering, Anthropology and the links between the Environment and Health.

The office is run by Isabelle HAMMAD at CEREGE, Europole de l'Arbois BP80, 13545 Aix-en-Provence Cedex 4 (Tel. (+34) 0442971504; Fax (+34)0442971595).
