EQUIPRICE lunch seminars

Equiprice lunch seminars are hybrid (in person and / or virtual, depending on the COVID context) lunch seminars designed to serve as technical tutorials or presentation of work in progress in relation to the scientific agenda of the ERC-sponsored project EQUIPRICE. Unless noted ‘internals,’ seminars are public and open to all, but registration to the in person event is required 48 hours before.

Note: All times indicated on this page refer to the Paris time zone.
