European Cross-Border Doctorials

From 5th to 10th July, 2021

The Doctorials are an event dedicated to the creation of entrepreneurial and innovative projects organized by numerous universities in France in partnership with companies that allow PhD students to meet with the business world.

European Cross-border Doctorials are organized by the Languedoc-Roussillon Doctoral College in partnership with 12 European universities. They are held entirely on line and exclusively in English.

The objective is to allow PhD students from various disciplines and several European universities to familiarize themselves, before the end of their thesis, with the workings of the world of entrepreneurship; business and innovating creation in a completely multidisciplinary, multicultural and international context.
In summary, the objectives of these doctoriales:

- On one hand, encourage PhD students to create their start-up and to learn about technology transfer.
- On the other hand, enhance their employability both in the private and the public sectors.
