In addition, at the end of each taught block, GSD will integrate a complementary EMIR Winter and Summer School. During one week, EMIR students will be able to reinforce their knowledge by putting into practice the tools and instru­ments introduced during the mandatory modules. The EMIR Winter and Summer School will increase the sense of collegiality among students. Guest speak­ers, mainly practitioners, will deliver lectures and conduct special seminars.

The EMIR Winter and Summer Schools are also open to practitioners who desire to engage in an intense week of training.
