Franco-German cooperation ABG-FGU

The Franco-German cooperation between Association Bernard Gregory (ABG) and the Franco-German University (FGU) aims to ac­company and support French and German PhD candidates and PhD gra­duates before, during and after they start their working life. 

Within the framework of this cooperation, ABG and the FGU organize flagship events and cross-border training sessions based on the ABG catalog:

  • Development center : this workshop gives participants practice in a recruitment process commonly used across Europe and in some professional sectors.
    See the Development Center training summary
  • Franco-German PhD cocktail party « ApéroDoc »: a friendly networking session for PhD-holders who have opted for a career path outside academia.

  • Franco-German Pre-Thesis Workshop: Should I go for a doctorate or not? That is the question! To decide, you have to analyze your motivations, your goals and your resources.
    See the “Pre-Thesis Workshop” summary
  • Franco-German Young Researchers' Day : As major players in the European research landscape, Germany and France offer many opportunities to (future) young researchers. Association Bernard Gregory, in partnership with the Franco-German University, the French Institute of Germany and the French Embassy in Berlin, has for several years been organizing an information day for young researchers about their career development.
