Poster Night 

All candidates' auditions were grouped on Wednesday, March 22nd, which ended with a poster session presenting ENP centers and teams associated with a cocktail dinner at the Collège des Bernardins. This year, candidates had the opportunity to attend the ENP Days 2017, hence they could meet the ENP students' representatives, Soham Saha, Anna Ptukha and Maria Julia Carbajal, as well as other invited students and postdocs both from the abroad and from the ENP network. They also attended the conferences presented by the heads of the ENP new teams, as well as those given by prestigious international researchers invited at the ENP Days. Finally, some of them identified teams and freely met the ENP leaders who have aroused their interest, thanks to the "ENP 2017 centers" presentation booklets that were provided.
