A foundational aspect of the graduate school is to offer a consistent training program to the PhD students in addition to the one proposed at the doctoral schools’ level.
The flagship measure is the creation of an interdisciplinary lab for young researchers. The PhD students' lab aims to bring together PhD students from the project's research teams and to take advantage of methodological and theoretical exchanges between the different disciplines of the EUR around a common thematic axis.
The PhD training emphasizes a strong proximity to high-level researchers worldwide by way of internships or visits to international partner laboratories. In addition, they are encouraged to participate in congresses and workshops to exchange with researchers and share their own work. The “expert mission” of the PhD students will also strengthen the links between research structures and companies.
DIGISPORT also aims at developing a substantial offer for continuing training by e-learning also available to foreign students. Lifelong training is enhanced by the innovative pedagogical tools, flexibility of enrollment and coursework over several years. These students will validate university degrees or certificates.
The consortium will grow continuously at the national and international level through networking between research units and shared interests with organizations operating in the same fields.
