The training period has the main objective of enable an exchange with the team of the spatial mission CoRoT ground segment. The team works in the Paris-Meudon observatory. This interaction has the objective to discuss the results obtained for the developed image processing algorithm for the channel exoplanetes as well to analyze the possibility of improvement of the model adopted for the jitter effect and elaboration of a stochastic stochastic for the image construction. Other important activities the algorithm integration to the software used for the photometry process for a better evaluation of the results new versions of the algorithm. (AU)
