The SIE school


Atuniversité Savoie Mont blanc we encourage our doctoral students to go abroad to use equipment useful to your research or to spend time at a foreign university. We're sure you'll come across an international mobility opportunity that matches your profile.

While the most successful form of internationalization is the co-supervision of a thesis, other doctoral mobility opportunities exist, such as co-directorships, research stays, attendance at international conferences or participation in thematic schools.

They also enable you to forge links with other research teams and open up opportunities for cooperation in your future career.
