Why Apply?

Are you a doctoral candidate thinking about your future career? Are you curious about different career opportunities in research? Are you looking to develop professional skills that complement your research background?

Then this summer school is right for you!

Doctoral degree-holders worldwide face shifting professional outcomes. European research-intensive universities have a responsibility to prepare their doctorates to apply their research training in a variety of professional contexts beyond higher education institutions, and to prepare them for the economic, ethical, cultural, and social challenges they will face throughout their professional lives.

This summer school will give you a deeper understanding of the implications and applications of your research training, entrusting you with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to guide your future professional development.

In one intensive week, you will:

  • Participate in a combination of workshops, lab visits, as well as private and public sector site visits. 
  • Network with other PhD candidates, lecturers, as well as European and national experts who will share their research and expertise.
  • Engage with local organisations and businesses, increasingly looking to recruit doctoral degree holders.
  • Expand your international academic and professional network
  • Gain cross-cultural perspectives on doctoral training and its career implications.

The number of participants is limited to 40 participants. PhD candidates from all fields of study are encouraged to apply.
