The Project

Training

Our mission is to educate a new generation of researchers specialised in modern C-H activation, and prepare them to become tomorrow’s leaders in the field.

We are committed to provide a 360° training to give them the tools required to succeed, in particular:

→ provide excellent cutting-edge scientific training;
→ bring an interdisciplinary understanding of C-H activation and its applications;
→ offer a multi-sectorial insight to chemical R&D to understand both academic and industrial expectations;
→ bring transversal skills and training relevant to future senior managers in leading chemistry-related laboratories, e.g. management, dissemination, entrepreneurship, gender issues, etc.
