Bonjour Thierry/Sylvia,

J'ai bien reçu votre message et projet que je trouve vraiment intéressant. J'aimerai qu'on puisse en discuter un peu plus. Est-ce que vous été déjà inscrit à un programme doctoral en France, si oui, dans quel faculté? On peu se parler par skype si on arrive à accorder un horaire qui nous convienne. Mon adresse: amalia_boyer. Je voudrais vous parler bientôt car je monte un projet de recherche pour l'appel Ecos Nord France-Colombie que tient compte de la formation doctorale. A très bientôt j'espère.

Bien à vous,

Amalia Boyer
