The path of an interdisciplinary researcher: driven by challenges and collaborations, in search of innovation

Meet with Samuel Laney


Navigating between engineering and oceanography, Samuel Laney is an atypical researcher. Working at the interface of disciplines, he has evolved without checking the boxes of specialization, catalyzing collaborations for the benefit of innovation. During this participative workshop, you'll learn more about the challenges and obstacles encountered, but also about the opportunities and skills acquired in a career off the beaten track.

This workshop will be an opportunity to:

  • Reflect on the skills associated with interdisciplinary work
  • Identify strategies for capitalizing on your learning and transferring it to the job market.


When? Thursday, December 7, from 3 to 5 p.m., including a networking activity

Where? On the Université Laval campus. The location will be communicated to registrants



This workshop will be offered in English.

Free and open to all. Registration required.
