REGARD workshops


The 2023 REGARD program is available !

The REGARD workshops offer you concrete tools for your academic career management - whether you are a PhD candidate, a member of the mid-level faculty or a women professor. During the workshops you develop your transversal skills together with other researchers from the six partner universities.

In 2004, the Equal Opportunities Offices of the Universities of Fribourg, Geneva, Lausanne, Neuchâtel developped the REGARD workshop program. A couple of years later the HES-SO and the EPFL jointed the project.
