Training in and through research

The first program put in place aims to detect the best postgraduate student and retain them in the LABEX EMC³ laboratories to undertake a PhD thesis by training them in and through research. So, member research units are granted each year by an allocation equivalent to 12 months of internship in order to fund 2 (6 months) to 3 (4 months) students depending to their training program. From 2012 to 2017, 71 students were financed by this allocation. Among them, 46 students (65%) chose to stay in the LABEX laboratories to achieve a PhD thesis.
