PhD Lab

Espace de coworking Laboratoire des doctorants Digisport

Installed on the Villejean Campus (University Rennes 2), the PhD Lab is a space where PhD students can gather together and exchange about their research activities.

The objective of this laboratory is to foster the creation of an interdisciplinary community by bringing together students working in different research partner teams in order to encourage methodological and theoritical synergies between the various fields covered by DIGISPORT.
