Cross-border Doctorials 2019

From the 21st to the 25th of October

Cross-border Doctorials is a series of events jointly promoted by universities and higher education institutions of the Pyrenees-Mediterranean Euroregion. Previous editions have been organized by the University of Perpignan Via Domitia, the University of Girona, the University of the Balearic Islands, and the Collège Doctoral Laguedoc-Roussillon.

The goal of the Cross-border Doctorials is to increase the employability of young PhD students in both the public and private sectors, including through their own entrepreneurship. Attendees will improve professional and social skills and will learn how to pursue their careers in companies, research centres or by setting up their own start-ups. Attendees will face a challenge that will be addressed by a multidisciplinary and international working group.

This year event will be organized by the University of Girona in the framework of the UNIVERS European University. The Languedoc-Roussillon Doctoral College of the LR Communauté d’Universités et Etablissements is co-organizing the event. Besides PhD students from the PM Euroregion, other students from Ca’Foscari, Klagenfurt, Primorska and Andorra will be welcome. The event will be held at Torre Mirona Hotel in Navata from 21-25 October.
