CIRIR for students and professors

CIRIR aims to become an educational training center and a cultural resources center. CIRIR opens the site to the students in Earth, Life and Space Sciences from universities and high schools in France and abroad. For example, CIRIR host and co-supervises a doctoral student of Senegalese nationality, a Master 2 student from the University of Aix-Marseille, a doctoral student from Arizona State University. Two others from Canada are planned in 2018. All of them have Rochechouart as a field of study. Others will follow in the coming months. In spring 2018, Rochechouart will host the planetary geology field class of Philippe Claeys group (Belgium world expert group on K-T boundary and impact cratering). Contacts are taken on similar grounds with NASA-Lunar and Planetary Institute organizing yearly master-classes at terrestrial impact craters.
