Career Development Event: MCAA France Chapter 2019 Career Symposium


The MCAA France Chapter 2019 Career Symposium will take place this year at Institut Curie, on 20 May.



Organised by the Marie Curie Alumni Association in collaboration with Institut Curie's Training Unit, this conference aims to gather young researchers and actors of the world of policy, economy, start-up and industry.

We believe such event has the potential to raise awareness among young researchers for a meaningful career

We are pleased to announce that we have invited exceptional speakers. On the morning session, you'll have the chance to listen to the CEO of TE-OX, GeoLook and Anovra. You will then have the chance to ask them questions and approach them at the coffee break.

Lunch will be then provided after a short break session where lectures without borders and research ability will be presented. In parallel of lunch time we have organized a fun speed dating to discover in few minutes the topic of other young researchers.

The afternoon session will be focus on career opportunity in the world of science and policy/diplomacy. We have invited Antonella Di Trapani who is Head of NEST, secretariat and organisation OECD – NEA (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development of the Nuclear Energy Agency). We also are happy to say that actors from S4D4C and InSciDE will be present as well. 

Finally, the Association Bernard Gregory will provided career mentoring session.
