Programme for spouses and partners

Life in expatriation can be quite challenging, Espace Ulys wants to help scientists' spouses and partners better integrate in their new life in Lyon. For that we offer two main supports to accompanying spouses in the process of adapting to their new life, and make the best out of it:

  • Professional support
  • Social & friendly integration support with Espouse Ulys

professional support

If you relocated to Lyon with the idea of working here, please do not hesitate to send us your CV.

We can also facilitate an individual appointement with an ADERLY RH consultant to help you in your job search. She will help you define and/or adjust your job search and understand the Lyon’s job market depending on your profil and sector of expertise.

Espace Ulys organises occasionally workshops for the professional integration of spouses. These activities are meant to help the person define its personal and professional project and give tools to achieve them.


social integration SUPPORT: volunteer with the "espouses"

In order to overcome isolation expirienced by many trailing spouses, espace Ulys invites all spouses and partners that wish to participate as volunteers in proposing and/or organising activities.

The  "Espouse Ulys" group meets on Tuesdays, at 10 a.m. at the Université de Lyon to discuss new ideas of activities. Everybody is welcomed to participate, even if it is occasionally.

This is a great opportunity to meet a multicultural group, make friends and stay active!
