Mobility and external partners

AIM integrates mobility at several levels: (i) through the workshops planned throughout the duration of the programme; (ii) through the lab rotations in the doctoral plan; (iii) through the requirement that the thesis project bridges different strains of microsystems research; and (iv), as described below, through stays at external partner laboratories and companies.

Expanding student experiences outside the direct context of doctoral courses and research is central to a modern and broad doctoral education. The proponents have assembled a group of external academic and industrial institutions who have agreed to host the doctoral candidates for a period of time. These stays are planned from the start in the thesis project of each doctoral student.

The list of academic and industrial institutions that agreed to collaborate with AIM is expected to increase for the duration of the programme. Here is the current list of the EXTERNAL PARTNER GROUP of AIM:
