Students in MA, Ph.D. or Post-Ph.D. wishing to do research in either France or Germany were welcomed to the event: “Young Researchers Day,” which is held every year at the French Institute of Berlin in early July.

This annual event is a great opportunity to be informed on how to start academic research in another country. Debates and conferences were held by academicians from France and Germany. They provided information on the mobility between the two academic systems of France and Germany and on how to have financial support.

This annual event aims to improve cooperation in academic research between the two countries. France and Germany, two prominent countries in terms of research in Europe try to bring together young promising students in order to create synergies. It is sponsored by the French Institute of Berlin, the French embassy in Berlin, the NGO “Association Bernard Gregory”, the French-German University and the “France Deutschland” Campus.

Moreover, other similar minor events are organized throughout the year. And like every year, a French-German Forum will be held in Strasbourg in fall 2017. It is another opportunity for students to organize a truly bilingual and international academic path.
