Training programme


The Network’s Training Programme has three main parts:

  • Project-specific (PhD) training,
  • Network-specific (complementary) training, and
  • International (Network-independent) training

Every ESR in the Network will enter a high quality PhD programme at one of the Partner Universities. This will consist of a laboratory-based research project combined with lectures and seminars. The Bologna process has greatly increased the uniformity of PhD requirements across Europe especially in major research led universities such as those in the Network. Consequently, the obligatory lectures a doctoral student is required to take are
comparable at the Partner Universities (and are described on their websites) whereas the optional courses vary according to local profiles.
