Summer school location

ERASME’s 2021 Summer School on Complexity Science for Sustainability will take place in Laschamps, Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Nature Park, close to Clermont-Ferrand, France. For two weeks, we will carry out our activities at Espace Volcan, an eco-friendly chalet & event centre. The area is great for hikes to nearby Puy de Dôme, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Chaîne de Puys-Limagne fault of dormant volcanoes. It is also part of the Santiago de Compostela route and hosts annul stages in Le Tour de France!
