« Researchers without borders » : let’s discover your opportunities in Europe

ABG (Association Bernard Gregory) and its partners, the French-German University and the French-Italian University, is organising a 2-day event on researchers’ mobility and career development in Europe, with the support of the European Commission.

The purpose of the event is to inform PhDs about:

During two days, they have the opportunity to meet and discuss with representatives of research institutes, mobility/research funding agencies, companies and career advisors from Europe.

It takes place in Paris on December 11 and 12. The whole program is held in English.
