The structured programme offers, thus, a predefined learning path that is designed to draw on the tools and concepts of project management applied to academic research. This approach not only provides a practical and result-oriented basis for PhD researchers that can improve completion rates at the partner universities, but also trains students in a crucial professional competence such as project management, both in theory and practice.

Enrolment proceeds as follows:

Students already enrolled as PhD candidates at one of the Partner Universities are granted access to the programme after an initial consultation with the programme coordinator and the submission of a CV, a motivation letter and an outline of their research ideas. Once the conditions for participation in the EDELNet programme are verified (e.g. language proficiency, enrolment in Partner University, etc.), candidates are invited to participate in the “Aspiring Phase”.
