Franco-German ABG-FGU branch office

The Franco-German ABG-FGU branch office is a partnership between ABG and the Franco-German University. It affords a gateway to the research communities and job markets of both countries. In addition to assisting (future) doctoral candidates and PhD-holders with their plans for Franco-German mobility, this branch  office supports universities, research institutes and companies seeking to increase their visibility and recruit from an international pool of candidates.

The Franco-German ABG-FGU branch office draws from the ABG catalogue to hold bilingual, cross-border training sessions:

OFAJ held a seminar in 2015 on “Practical Advice for Doctoral Candidates”:
