18. What is the Research Plan?

Before the end of the first year, together with your director, you must prepare a Research Plan, which will include, at least, the methodology to be used and the objectives to be achieved, as well as the resources and the scheduling of the research. It should also include a schedule for the training activities to be performed during the doctoral training.

The research plan must be uploaded onto the GAUR computer application in PDF format. It can be modified throughout the realisation of the thesis.
The research plan is one element which is analysed by the academic committee during the annual evaluation of the doctoral student (see question 19).

Please bear in mind that you will not be able to modify the plan during the evaluation.
