Doctoral course "Robustness: from a wooly concept to operational measures" at AgroParisTech (Paris, France)

Agreenium, the French institute of agronomy, veterinary and forestry sciences, proposes a doctoral course to discover and discuss the concept of animal robustness as a complex, multi-level and dynamic concept, and its relevance in management strategies. During 5 days, participants will:

  • Get the elements for understanding the concept of animal robustness as a complex, multi- level and dynamic concept. We will also discuss its relevance in management strategies.
  • Discuss the multi-components aspect of robustness, and the fact that the trade-off between different functions (e.g. survival, production and reproduction) is necessary to ensure the robustness of an animal.
  • Be given mathematical and statistical tools to characterize and quantify this important trait.

This course targets French and International PhD students, all biologists and animal scientists (Post docs, educational staff and professional) interested in the robustness concept and the modelling tools to characterize it.

The course is free for PhD students and will be charged 400€ for young professionals.
