Forthcoming (or past) defenses

You can find here all the dates and places of PhD defenses. The PhD defenses are important events because they sign the culmination of several years of research and are generally gratified by the title of doctor. These are talk of 45min followed by 15min of questions from the jury. You are strongly recommended to attend several PhD defenses to familiarize yourself with the process but also to discover and deepen your knowledge on current research topics. Feel free to come to support your colleagues in this great moment!

If your defense is not here, ask us to add it!
