In the digital age, it is essential to train girls so that they can fully integrate into a rapidly changing economic and professional world. DigiFilles is an operation that aims to promote digital training and jobs in order to attract a greater number of young women and to encourage new vocations.

The objectives of the DigiFilles partners are clear: to encourage girls to open up the field of possibilities and to dare to go digital!

To achieve this, DigiFilles is offering five-day immersive courses involving digital technology to around one hundred schoolgirls in the Montpellier area.

Initiated by #DigitAg, the Convergences Agriculture Numérique Institute supported by INRAE, in partnership with the Data Science Institute (ISDM), DigiFilles brings together research organisations (CIRAD, INRIA) and higher education and research establishments (University of Montpellier, Montpellier SupAgro Agro-Institute), which are opening their laboratories to group internships (maximum of 7 schoolgirls), which are both operational and concrete.

Each internship is supervised by a tutor: women researchers, engineers, technicians, doctoral students or women working in our support services. Male and female "job witnesses" occasionally intervene to enlighten these young girls on the fields of study, the opportunities and the interest of their jobs. Watch our video (below) on the subject!

Thank you to the colleges, the Rectorat and the Occitanie Region for welcoming DigiFilles!
