Visiting researchers


The CIECST welcomes researchers from various backgrounds who wish to further their work on occupational health or to develop it. The Chair provides a research framework which encourages exchanges and comparisons across cultures and disciplines, and is likely to foster collaborations between researchers and between research teams. The aim is also to get to know and make known the approaches of international, national and New Aquitaine region researchers in the fields of occupational health and the raising of ethical awareness.
