The International PhD programme "Environment, Research and Sustainable Development" has as its mission the training of highly specialised professionals in the field of environmental science and sustainable development.
Its focus is on micro, meso, and macro systems, including their physicochemical and biological aspects.
The programme aims to promote a holistic view of natural systems, highlighting the mechanisms that underpin the structure and functioning of ecosystems.
The 3-year programme is complemented by a large network of international partners, and strives to promote the global dimension of scientific research. English is the official language of the programme, which consists of both course work and applied research.
PhD students must spend a minimum of 3 months abroad working in a University or research centre, and are involved in research projects conducted under the supervision of a member of the PhD scientific board.
Research work and dissertation writing are complemented by the publication of peer-reviewed articles in international scientific journals.
