Description

It is planned as a course with compulsory attendance, with a theoretical explanation of each of the modules, which will be accompanied by a series of practical exercises which the participants must perform throughout the sessions.

Results

The doctoral student will acquire the necessary tools to access, evaluate, use and disseminate information in an ethical manner.

Assessment systems

It is an on-site seminar, and therefore attendance is compulsory and will be monitored by means of signatures for each of the modules. At the end of the activity the tutor will be given a report allowing an assessment of the acquisition of the skills associated with this activity.

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

The UPV/EHU annually organizes the Science and Technology Week on the three campuses. The stands of the research groups participating in the Doctoral Program in Forensic Science are staffed by the doctoral students.

Results

It involves the students on the program in the process of the transmission of the knowledge acquired to society.

Assessment systems

The research groups must draw up a final report on the activities conducted during the week, which is evaluated by the Research Vice-Rectorate.

Description

The General Research Services conduct Specialization Courses lasting 30 hours, which are primarily studied by doctoral students. 1. Course in liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectroscopy (Operation and application in QQQ and initiation in Q-TOF) 2. Gas chromatography with mass detection. Theoretical course and practical applications 3. Determination of majority and minority metals by atomic absorption: majority (atomic absorption of flame and minority (graphite chamber and generation of hydrides) 4. Analysis of Abuse Drugs in biological matrices by means of LC-MS-MS techniques

Results

They allow students to have a general vision of the different scientific areas involved in Forensic Analysis, in such a way that, although the student does not specifically work in the field, he or she has qualified knowledge of the different techniques of Forensic Analysis.

Assessment systems

The SGIKER Units which conduct the courses will issue the corresponding accreditation diplomas, which will include the title of the subject of specialization and the number of hours of the course. All the courses taught by the SGIKER are overseen by the service technical experts with quality advisers who will provide constant feedback on the group activity and monitor the work done every day by the students. Once they have enrolled on the courses, attendance and active participation in the practical sessions is compulsory.

Description

Stays with prestigious research groups performed by the students on the program, allowing them to obtain the International Doctorate award.

Results

Completing and furthering their research training

Assessment systems

The doctoral stays are endorsed by the obtaining of competitive aids awarded by, for example, the Ministry of Education and the Basque Government. All the stays must be justified on their completion by the corresponding certificates issued by the host research groups of recipients and the report explaining the expenses submitted by the doctoral student. Each student will submit a report on the activities conducted during the stay, which will be evaluated by the Academic Committee of the Doctoral Program.
