Implementing doctoral mobility

Implementing doctoral mobility

Online event for EUF universities

Audience: Administrative staff, academics and PhD candidates from EUF network universities

Date: March 31st, 2022 from 10:00 to 12:00 CEST

Registration is open only to staff members from EUF network universities.

The fifth session of the EUF network Knowledge Exchange Community on doctoral mobility will be held on March 31st, 2022 and will be chaired by Aurèlia Mañé-Estrada, Deputy Director at the Doctoral School of the University of Barcelona.

The new Erasmus Programme (2021-2027) has introduced several novelties concerning the implementation of doctoral mobility, notably by inducing greater flexibility for PhD candidates to undertake short- or long-term physical mobility periods abroad.

In this session, we will focus on existing and new opportunities and discuss how and to what extent they can meet the learning and training needs of doctoral candidates. Representatives from EUF member universities and the European Commission will share their practices and experiences about the implementation of doctoral mobility.
