CIVIS3i will foster a comprehensive postdoctoral program in all scientific domains. To enhance the researcher’s career, CIVIS3i strongly encourages the researchers' participation in inter-sectoral training via a secondment period. The vast majority of advisors within the CIVIS3i Alliance have already developed a well-established network of academic and non-academic collaborators, and this will be the starting point to identify appropriate secondment opportunities (which can be searched on the Find a Secondment section). Furthermore, the CIVIS3i coordinator, Aix-Marseille University (AMU) has established long-standing collaboration with regional clusters in the Provence Alpes-Cote d’Azur Region.
