Thus, the FdV graduate school recruits students trained in various disciplines (e.g. biology, physics, medicine, economy, linguistics) from around the world.
A number of research aims are associated to the FdV doctoral school due the interdisciplinary nature of the program. They can be broadly categorized into two main topics: life sciences and education/discovery, which is referred to as the New Frontiers.
