Supporting the career path of doctoral candidates
To facilitate the acquisition of tailored entrepreneurial and leadership skills, the EU-funded EPFLglobaLeaders project aims to attract outstanding PhD candidates from around the world to Switzerland’s Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). The programme will increase the PhD candidates’ knowledge and awareness about timely social questions. It will also prepare them for leadership roles, with a focus on global challenges and a sustainable society. The overall aim of EPFLglobaLeaders is to reach out to excellent PhD candidates and provide them with the training, experience and guidance they need to boost their careers.
