International mobility for research

As part of its Training mission, the Ecole Universitaire Genétique et Epigénétique Nouvelle Ecole (EUR G.E.N.E.) offers 10 international mobility funding each year to PhD students.


  • Funding of up to € 2,000 for international mobility in a partner laboratory, including support for round-trip travel and accommodation on site. On a case-by-case basis, projects such as training combining theory and practice may be considered.
  • Funding will be a reimbursement after the mobility, upon reception of invoices and proof of mobility. Priority will be given to projects co-financed by the thesis laboratory (including through other grants).



  • To be enrolled at Université Paris Cité in a doctoral school of the G.E.N.E. Graduate School : BioSPC or HOB and working on a subject with a genetics ou epigenetics component
  • To be in the 2nd or 3rd year of a doctorate in a G.E.N.E. Graduate School affiliated laboratory (exceptional derogations for students in the first year of a doctorate may be examined on a case-by-case basis upon justification of the indispensable nature of the mobility at that time)
