What kind of projects can I do?
In principle, there are projects available in all study fields. The current offer of project is continuously evolving. Please see the attached files below for the current offers.
An example of a previous project:
Behavioural and International Economics (Université Paris-Sud):
In discussing the origins and implications of international trade, economists emphasize comparative advantage, increasing returns to scale and consumer love of variety but pay relatively little attention to the firms that actually drive trade flows. Yet engaging in international trade is an exceedingly rare activity: of the 5.5 million firms operating in the United States in 2000, just 4 percent were exporters. These firms run by managers may be subject to different biases such as too much aversion to risk or loss aversion. The objective of this research will be to identify such biases by constructing appropriate data or exploiting existing data sets.
Other topics were:
- Nano-structured porous materials (Université Paris-Sud)
- Interdisciplinary research on emotion and other affective phenomena (Université de Genève)
- Regulation of the initiation of ciliary growth (University Paris-Saclay)
- Ethnic Power Relations and Conflict in Fragile States (Université de Genève)
