Secondment in the non-academic sector

The purpose of the secondment in the non-academic sector is to provide the PhD candidates with hands-on experience of a specific field and to enable them to acquire transferral skills, preparing them for their future career after their PhD. The secondment must therefore be beneficial to both parties, notably to the PhD candidates through the completion of their PhD and thereafter.
