Description

These are intensive residential seminars lasting a week. They are conducted in English in an inter-disciplinary and multicultural environment. Forty researchers from each university, in their second year of doctoral training, receive extensive training designed for their future vocational integration in a socio-labour environment not exclusively linked to research at universities and/or public and semi-public centres. All the activities are dynamised by personnel specializing in the organization of doctorials and the facilitation of teamwork. The scheduled activities include visits to companies, research centres and cultural entities selected from both sides of the border, the testimonies of executive doctors and entrepreneurs and teamwork for the joint preparation of an innovative project which will be submitted at the end of the encounter. Participation in the doctorials is optional and does not entail any enrolment fee. All the maintenance, accommodation and transport costs will be financed by the organizing universities, with the help of the funding obtained from the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Aquitaine-Euskadi cooperation fund of the Basque government.

Results

The doctoral students acquire practical training in communication, innovation, teamwork, leadership and entrepreneurship. Based on the testimonies and experiences of different professionals working in companies and associations in the field of culture and language, as well as visits to companies and associations, the students come into direct contact with professional experience. These seminars have an inter-disciplinary approach, grouping the students together in units which combine different universities of origin and areas of knowledge. The experience should provide a wealth of knowledge about how to articulate a future professional project both in and outside the University.

Assessment systems

The whole procedure for the doctorials is overseen by a pedagogical cabinet, with professional advisers who will provide continuous feedback on the group activity and monitor the work done every day by the doctoral students. Once the latter have enrolled for the doctorials, attendance and active participation in the sessions is compulsory.

Description

These seminars will guide the student in the preparation of scientific reports and further his or her studies in the composition of scientific texts, as well as instruments for the submitting of research work and dissemination strategies to increase the impact of the research. Particular attention will be paid to the recreation of real situations for communication skills and the defence and dissemination of research works. In particular, the public exposition of a research work will be proposed, which will last about 40 minutes, to be followed by a period for discussion during which the student will reply to the questions of the attendees.

Results

To be able to draw up a scientific report based on the results obtained. The student will be able to use the tools for the presentation of the results of the research. Similarly, appropriate communication strategies can be used to accurately transmit the research conducted. The student should know how to select and use the most relevant strategies to optimize the impact of the research. He or she should also be able to communicate the research plan and the first results obtained.

Assessment systems

The thesis director, by means of the control procedures he or she deems appropriate, will evaluate the acquisition of skills and the learning results.

Results

The following learning results are established for the presentation activity at a scientific meeting: - Acquiring the ability to select the most appropriate forum for the research work underway. - Acquiring the ability to communicate the development and results of the research in a scientific forum. - Acquire the ability to establish contacts with other researchers from institutions different from that of the doctoral student. - Acquiring the ability to synthesize the relevant information of the different presentations and plenary lectures.

Assessment systems

Description

The activity will consist of a minimum three-month stay at a foreign university or research centre, at which the student will join the research team corresponding to the topic of the thesis he or she is conducting. Similarly, the student will participate in all the training activities which take place at the centre, especially the seminars related to the lines of research of the thesis.

Results

The results of the stay will allow the thesis to incorporate the most advanced and current-day contents and knowledge, as well as facilitating the realization of an international thesis or one with co-tutorship. The exchange of knowledge of different research methodologies will serve to enrich the individual and collective training and to strengthen the links between the research groups of the two universities.

Assessment systems

By means of the submitting of a report justifying the activities conducted during the stay by the student. The Academic Committee of the Doctoral Program will ultimately certify the final result of the activity.
