What do beneficiaries think of it?

“It was a space to ask myself those important questions that in the daily life you don´t have time to answer.”

“As the atmosphere was very friendly and casual, we were able to ask many frank questions which we might not have a chance to ask in a professional setting.”

“To me the most important outcome was the increased self-awareness of my person and of my potential and skills.“

“The workshop gave me more confidence and a better general knowledge of the prospective jobs on the market for life sciences PhD holders.”

“Know yourself. Talk to people/do networking. Be curious. The workshop will definitely help me setting a proper plan for the future.”

“I have the feeling that I know what to do to clarify my future career plans!”


What do supporting research institutes think of it?

"The Crossborder Postdoctoriales are a unique opportunity for postdoctoral researchers to reflect on their career orientation. This intense four-day workshops creates awareness on alternative career paths and the current job market in the Greater Region. It allows the young scientists to network with peers and get in touch with PhD holders and recruiters from different sectors and fields of expertise. Furthermore, the event strengthens the confidence the postdoctoral researchers have in their technical and personal competences and shows them how to valorise these skills when applying for a non-academic job position. By supporting the Crossborder Postdoctoriales for the fourth consecutive time, our research institution aims to open new career perspectives to its postdoctoral researchers and improve their preparation for the next career step."
