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

Most of the theses are expected to receive international mentions, for which the students must perform a stay of at least three months at an international laboratory. This stay will take place in the third year of the doctorate. The aids provided by the current grant system will be applied for and they will be conducted in laboratories that the tutor and student consider appropriate for the student's training. A report by the person hosting the student will be required at the end of the stay. The students will perform a stay lasting at least three months to acquire laboratory skills.

Results

The host centres must formally accept the doctoral students. If the event of co-tutorship an agreement will be signed between the UPV/EHU and the other university. At the moment negotiations are beginning for one with the University of Bordeaux. The stay lasting at least three months should preferably be performed in a single period of time but may be split into two in the event of a part-time doctorate. The methodology to be applied in their experimental work will be completed.
