The Université de Lyon is partnering with the University of Turin, the Conference of Western Switzerland's Universities (CUSO), the University of Brescia and the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Genoa to organize the fifth cross-border doctoral workshop based on the theme: Prepare for your future career.


Held from June 16 to 18, 2021, the cross-border, multicultural, multidisciplinary and bilingual doctoral workshop aims to help PhD students prepare for their professional development outside of academia. It brings together doctoral students from the Université de Lyon, the Université de Turin, the universities of Western Switzerland, and for the first time this year, students from University of Brescia and the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Genoa.

It will involve practical workshops, job interview simulations and discussions with doctors and business representatives.

This year, due to the Covid-19 crisis, the fifth edition of the workshop will be held entirely online. This event is funded by the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and by the project’s partner institutions.
