For the third straight year, from July 1–3, about 20 people from CEA Tech (Leti, List, and Liten) will participate in an off-site seminar to prepare for the French-state-sanctioned research directorship accreditation (habilitation à diriger des recherches). For applicants, this trip to Lans-en-Vercors represents a break from their everyday routine and an opportunity to make progress on their dissertations, the successful defense of which will earn them France’s highest academic distinction.
Alternating independent and group work time, this workshop will offer talks by diverse speakers (scientific directors from CEA Tech, heads of doctoral schools) who try to answer all the applicants’ questions on what to expect from the jury at their defense. A session of individual coaching for their oral presentation is also an option.
