Joint supervision agreement
The agreement aims for doctoral candidates to spend at least 6 months at another EuroTech university. Each doctoral candidate has a “home university” (with a supervisor) and one (or more) “host university (universities)”. The candidate will have a supervisor at the home university and a co-supervisor at each host university (at EPFL only one co-director can be formally nominated, though) who will jointly define the individual supervision/program.
The doctoral degree is awarded by the home university only, following its principles and rules.
A “Doctoral Project Description” will be prepared for each doctoral candidate at least 6 months before the exchange(s). This description will outline the aim and the objectives of the overall research collaboration and contain the plan of collaboration to be undertaken at the involved universities.
