which is granted by the European Commission through the research funding programme, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) in Horizon 2020. MSCA aim to support successful careers in all sectors by funding research and training of young fellows – with a focus on innovation skills – in all scientific disciplines through international and intersectoral mobility.
EPOS doctoral fellows are jointly supervised by researchers from two universities, which are both members of the EPOC consortium. They all will have extended research and training stays at both of these universities and will receive a double degree upon graduation.
A joint governance structure with joint admission, selection, supervision, monitoring and assessment procedures of all EPOC universities forms the basis of the three year doctoral training. These measures contribute to overcoming national, sectoral and inter-disciplinary boundaries.
