On May 4, 2021, Arqus European University Alliance -via its AL5 "Entrepreneurial University & Regional Engagement"- is organising a one-hour webinar specifically dedicated to raising awareness on entrepreneurship as a career path for PhD candidates and Postdocs. This webinar is organised as part of the first Arqus Academy Week.

Led by the Université de Lyon, as head of the "Entrepreneurial University and Regional Engagement" Action Line, this panel will bring together three PhDs who are also entrepreneurs. Through their testimonials, we will discuss and exchange on topics like:

  • What is entrepreneurship and how it can be accessible ‘even’ to a PhD/post doc
  • The different career paths possible (outside academia…)
  • Testimonies and experiences of the panellists.

Organised within the frame of the first Arqus Academy Week, the session will be moderated by Valentin Joannet who works at Lyon’s Entrepreneurship Centre specifically on developing programs and content on entrepreneurship for PhDs/Postdocs.
