2getthere - Closing event



PhD graduates are increasingly moving into careers outside of academia. Navigating out of it involves being clear on the direction to take while translating your strengths and skills to a non-academic audience. Supporting international researchers in their career mobility while enabling the country to retain its highly skilled workers is one of our purposes.

With this in mind, EURAXESS Luxembourg has come up with 2getthere, a free-of-charge mentoring programme dedicated to PhD candidates who see their future career outside academia in Luxembourg.

20 PhD candidates from the University of Luxembourg and its interdisciplinary centers as well as from some of the Luxembourg research institutes, including the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) and the Luxembourg Institute of for Socio-Economic Research (LISER), were selected to participate in this first edition.

Regular exchanges with mentors, career building workshops, and career talks by PhD holders now working outside academia in Luxembourg.

Now coming to an end, EURAXESS Luxembourg is celebrating this first edition bringing together mentees, mentors, and supporters of the programme.
