towards sustainability
Towards sustainability
  • An entity that networks a set of European Universities andtakes the best from its networked members to create top-level PhD students
  • A set of opportunities that Ph.D. students could benefit from within the context of, and subject to the constraints of, their local institutions (not a common programme)
  • Brokering existing learning activities and creating collaboratively new ones
  • A flexible structure
      • No burden
      • No “standardization”
      • Different uses: punctual use, long-time agreements, curricula

Issues: quality insurance, recognition (ECTS, etc.), …
