General information

The ESC doctoral program brings together PhD students of the School of Criminal Justice (École des Sciences Criminelles – ESC, University of Lausanne) as well as any PhD student from a university delivering a PhD in forensic science or criminology. The aim of the program is to allow PhD students to develop their network as well as generic cross-disciplinary skills for successfully conducting their PhD research, but also to prepare them to their professional career. This objective is achieved by offering specialized workshops and activities, at the University campus as well as in the frame of a summer school. The proposed activities promote the active participation of the PhD students, for example by allowing them to present their work through lectures and posters sessions.


Accommodation is not covered by the fees. The Youth Hostel Lausanne Jeunotel might be an interesting option. If you wish to book a room there, please contact us.


Registration can be done online. Participants should send their abstracts through the online application form, after their participation is confirmed. You will receive relevant information by email, when submitting your registration online.
