The Spring School will comprise lectures on multiple aspects of molecular virology, round table discussions addressing specific topics, work group sessions for the development of research proposals, and conversations between the young scientists (in groups of 2 mentees) and the international experts (mentors). One of the goals of the work groups will be to improve the Wikipedia entries for the individual virus families. School participants will also be asked to prepare presentations on selected, easy-to-digest research papers, which will be sent to them before the School. These will be discussed together with the mentor/supervisor in small working groups.
