About “Researchers without borders - #EU4PHD”

On 11 and 12 December 2017, ABG, the French-German University and the French-Italian University organized an information day dedicated to researchers’ mobility and career development. This event was supported by the European Commission.

In two days, the main challenges of mobility for researchers were addressed: how to find opportunities and how to apply in Europe, in academia and beyond? How do I get my postdoc funded? How can my spouse be supported in his/her job search? …

Participants got practical answers to these questions and tips from 53 professionals and experts (recruiters from academia and industry, Science and Technology Advisor of French Embassies, career advisors…) to prepare their mobility and/or a smooth transition out of academia.

All the content and presentations of the event are available here!
