Afternoon session: round tables – 2:15 pm-4:45 pm

During this session, several round-table topics involving professional experts will be hold. Researchers will have opportunities to get answers to their questions. They will be to ask for advices and opinions pertaining to their industrial or scientific CV for corrections or fine-tuning.


Expected round-table topics in JSIam 2015:

  • Pôle Emploi International : « Opportunities abroad: Europe and overseas »
  • Saint-Gobain Industry :  » The daily-life of a scientist in a multinational company and personal development possibilities »
  • Valoridoc : « Exploring your job market / networking tips and tools »
  • Interactive round-table with GEM-GGSB (Grenoble Ecole de Management) students in innovation, strategy & entrepreneurship (lead by Beyond Lab)

This last round-table follows an innovative concept and format: 2 x two-hour interactive sessions between PhD students in science and students from an innovation & entrepreneurship program (enrolled at GGSB-Grenoble Ecole de Management). The goal is to create the business concept based on scientific expertise/technology and to present it in a short timescale. It requires participants to think differently about scientific achievements and their implementations in reality. The game offers an opportunity to present with new ideas and to find an inspiration and new connections to build your future start-up. (1 pre-session will be planned on February 26 for this round table with GEM/GGSB)
