A laboratory that favors young researchers

From the outset, LabEx ICCA has maintained a policy of assisting researchers who are at the start of their careers by:

  • recruiting doctoral students and postdocs, offering them an opportunity to concentrate on their research work within a multidisciplinary framework;
  • providing final-phase financing that allows doctoral students to complete their PhDs in favorable conditions;
  • setting up a training program to enhance doctoral students’ scientific expertise, and enabling them to acquire a grounding in the kinds of multidisciplinary skills and methodologies that apply to the cultural industries;
  • organizing summer schools that bring together doctoral students, postdocs, researchers from partner laboratories and guest researchers, to share experience and discuss the work of the doctoral students, who form a network within LabEx ICCA, and who are concerned with developing fresh new interdisciplinary perspectives of the creative and cultural industries.
