The workshop program R.E.G.A.R.D 2021 is available.

How the REGARD program works

In 2004, the Equal Opportunities Offices of the Universities of Fribourg, Geneva, Lausanne, Neuchâtel, and the USI developped the REGARD workshop program. A couple of years later, the USI left, but then the HES-SO and finally the EPFL jointed the project. Together, the six institutions offer each year more than 20 transversal skills workshops to female PhD candidates, professors, and members of the mid-level faculty.

The REGARD workshops propose concrete tools for career management and supervision. Participants develop necessary transversal skills together with other researchers from different universities. Our workshops create opportunities for discussion and the exchange of experience between women researchers. 

We open a couple of workshops each year to a mixed audience of female and male researchers (see flyer) to increase awareness about gender equality in the academic career. 

For whom, how and what?

  • Target groups: Assistants, PhD candidates, post-docs, maître-assistantes, MER et all other positions of the mid-level faculty, women professors 
  • Workshop topics: Plan your academic career; Project management for research; Communication tools; Personal development
  • Workshops in french and english
  • Free of charge for researchers from associated universities
  • At least 20 workshops each year for approx. 260 participants
  • Gender-mixed audience for certain workhops 


  • Develop generic skills that are essential for your career
  • Get to the grips with the rules of the academic world
  • Meet people who share the same issues and concerns
  • Learn how to keep the essential objectivity to reflect upon your career and options

Welcome to Carlos Eduardo !

Carlos E. Sousa Neves  graduated in Biochemistry from the University of Lisbon (Portugal) after which he moved to Aberdeen, Scotland, where he obtained his PhD in developmental biology from the University of Aberdeen.
After gaining further post-doctoral experience, he joined a small startup company in Edinburgh (Fios Genomics) as a bioinformatician. Since then he has worked for Sophia Genetics in Lausanne. He will join Paul Franken’s lab  from January 2021 to study the molecular changes induced by acute sleep deprivation in mice.


Welcome to Guillaume!

Guillaume Lavergne graduated from the University of Clermont-Ferrand (France), with a Master’s of Biology in Genetics and Physiology.
He then obtained his PhD working in the Jagla lab at the GReD institute in Clermont-Ferrand where he studied Drosophila muscle stem cells during embryogenesis at the interface between stem cell biology, neurogenesis and myogenesis.
He joined the Roignant group in January 2021 to elucidate the mechanisms underlying the specificity of m6A deposition in Drosophila. He will also investigate the link(s) between epitranscriptomic and epigenetic marks, and the conserved evolutionary features of m6A deposition.


Welcome to Enrico!

Enrico obtained his bachelor and master degree from the University of Padua.
For his master thesis he moved to the University of Leicester where he studied the diapause of Drosophila melanogaster in the lab of Bambos Kyriacou.
He then joined the group of Charlotte Förster at the University of Würzburg where he studied and characterized the circadian clock of selected non-model insect species.
He obtained his PhD in 2018 and continued with a project on the anatomical and functional characterization of the dorsal clock neurons of D. melanogaster.
Enrico joined the Benton lab in January 2021 to work on the genetic mapping of gustatory preferences.

Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) – workshops on SDGs for Early Career Researchers

Workshops on SDGs for Early Career ResearchersA series of free virtual workshops each focused on a UN Sustainable Development Goal will start in January.

The Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) – of which UNIL is a member – in collaboration with the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network and UNESCO, is holding a series of free virtual workshops, each thematically focused on a UN Sustainable Development Goal. The workshops will bring together early career researchers (ECRs) from all around the world (PhD students in their final year and post-docs), who are interested in establishing connections to colleagues in their field.

Format of the workshops
Each networking workshop lasts for 90 minutes, and will be launched by internationally distinguished speakers who will provide an overview of the major research opportunities and challenges in the broad topic domain. Following the introductory speakers, participants will break up into virtual meeting rooms, which will be set up according to the research interests (within the session’s SDG theme) indicated by participants during the registration process, so that they can develop their international networks and collaborations.Registrations to the first two workshops are open. Only researchers affiliated to UNIL or another WUN member university can register.

Climate action (27 January 2021)
