The 2020 seminar has been merged with the 2021 seminar. It will take place at AgroParisTech, from the 19th to 23rd April 2021. It will focus on the challenges of the bioeconomy. The program includes two days of scientific conferences which can be watched in streaming on the 20th and 21st April, and which will be open to a face-to-face audience (upon registration).
The aim of the EIR-A is to improve the employability of Ph.D. students through international opportunities and an awareness of the major challenges of society. A total of 45 Ph.D. students enrolled with one of the accredited members or supervised by a researcher or lecturer-researcher of one of its members benefit from this program every year.
The doctoral course of EIR-A
EIR-A gives doctoral students from all over France, the opportunity to participate in two open training seminars on current major issues, to create a scientific partnership and discover how a laboratory works abroad, to create a network of young researchers on various themes, and acknowledging this course by obtaining the EIR-A label.
What is the EIR-A program?
Since 2011, the EIR-A has offered Ph.D. students carrying out their research work in a laboratory of an Agreenium member additional Ph.D. training to expand their professional awareness. This is based on European benchmarks whereby the Ph.D. student is deemed to be a young professional. The EIR-A program supplements the doctoral training given by the institution in which the student is enrolled.
Its prime objective is to prepare young scientists to take up international positions by highlighting their professional career.
EIR-A PhD students enjoy residential seminars, a scientific stay abroad, an electronic skills notebook and personalised support centred on integrating the student’s skills from an employability perspective.
