Containment: turning constraint into opportunity


Information and registration

BONUS TRACK: beyond webconferences

Containment is well advanced and you have been home for several weeks. You're probably starting to find your feet and set a new pace in an environment that's... still, familiar!

Perhaps you have even set up some rituals using technology in your daily activities, in order to maintain links with your colleagues, managers, family, friends (who hasn't done a virtual happy hour yet?).

turning confinement into opportunity

After the emulation of these first weeks of setting up and adapting to this new situation, this is perhaps the beginning of a peaceful phase. What if this was an opportunity to take a step back from your projects, your life and take some time to think about your professional future?

Faithful to its missions and in order to guide you as well as possible in this so particular period, we propose you a time of exchanges, reflections and advice: the webconferences, every Friday of the confinement, from 11 am to 12:30 pm (except for the one on international mobility), in order to :

  • to exchange around a theme in order to deepen your thinking, to share your resources and your possible hindrances;
  • to share advice;
  • to benefit from the group's and the ABG coach/advisor's perspective.


"I'm confined, how do I use this time to:

  • [Wednesday 8 Aprilask myself the right questions about what I really want."
  • [Wednesday 15 Apriltalk with Michel Viso from CNRS

Come and listen to Michel Viso talk about his career path and the non-linearity of professional paths with curiosity, open-mindedness and decision-making as springs. He will also talk about relations with the world of industry and services, and how doctors need to adapt their behaviour to make a successful transition to the non-academic sector.

  • [Friday 17 April - 6pm CET] doing a postdoc in North America (USA/Canada) - Speakers: Fabien Agenes, PhD, Science and Higher Education Attaché at Consulate General of France in Vancouver ; Audrey Boyer, PhD, R&D Engineer at Genethon ; Louise Lassalle, Associate Director of Life Design at Johns Hopkins University
