Doctoral School life

The Neurosciences and Cognition Doctoral School pursues a complete series of initiatives to assist PhD students along their academic path.

Every year, it organizes training courses and scientific events. The school provides funding to student association for the organization of events.

It also goes out of its way to involve each PhD student int the everyday life and running of the doctoral schoo. To this end, the school regularly informs students regarding its decisions that directly or indirectly impact its operations and functioning, and keeps students up to date regarding important dates and deadlines that lend thythm to doctoral school life.
PhD student are represented by representatives on the Doctoral School Council.

Annual science day

Each year, the doctoral school organizes a scientific gathering that is generally held in spring.

Organized by the PhD students elected to the ‘Doctoral School Council’, this day is meant to give PhD students the opportunity to present their work via oral presentations or posters. Directors of the universities' professional integration services and guest neuroscientists are also invited to make presentations. This is also the moment when PhD students elect their representatives to the School Council and the Advisory Committee.
The doctoral school encourages participation in this event, for it allows all of the school's students to meet together, discuss their research and expand their networks.

In 2023, the annual science day was held on Wednesday 21st June at the Institut des Sciences Cognitives Marc Jeannerod - 67 Boulvard Pinel - 69500 BRON CEDEX.
