This course is the "training through research" version of the Year 3 project, with the focus on immersion in a laboratory and participation in a real research work, half-day per week. The access to high-tech equipment and facing open problems like in research labs represent a very useful training, regardless of the future profesionnal project. With the researcher supervising the project, each student will be able to acquire independently knowledge required for the project's good progress.

The proposed topics constitute a targeted work, directly linked with research activities at international level of welcoming laboratories. Projects are experimental, theorical or digital by nature, and can cover on fundamental or applied aspects. Once the framework is well defined, in particular the choice of day, taking into account the availability of the supervisor and the student, the work's progress can be freely managed.
