TP1: Doctoral programs of the universities (swissuniversities)

With the project "Doctoral programs of the universities 2017-2020 (TP1)" (successor to the SUK programme "Doctoral programmes 2013-2016"), swissuniversities is supporting the development of interuniversity doctoral degree programs at a national level. As part of structured doctoral degree programs, doctoral students are offered various forms of (interuniversity) exchange and educational opportunities. This should improve the quality and attractiveness of education to doctoral level and boost the career perspectives of doctoral students.
