Quality training for European PhD students in Micro/Nano-electronics

EURO-DOTS is aimed primarily at improving the offering and the quality of training proposed to European PhD students. It helps fulfilling the requirements for ECTS credits imposed to PhD students by major European universities for obtaining the Doctoral (PhD) degree in Engineering. A coherent set of advanced courses in micro/nano-electronics, accredited by major European universities in the framework of their Doctoral Program, are made easily accessible to European PhD students, offering the opportunity to collect ECTS credits throughout Europe.The global objective of EURO-DOTS is to create a delocalized (virtual) platform to serve the Doctoral Schools in Europe in micro/nano-electronics.The courses respect specific organization criteria (short, intensive one-week course modules with optional exam) that make them flexible, accessible and attractive as well for high-level continuous education of engineers from industry. Scholarships are available to selected PhD students for boosting the start-up of the project, while other sources of scholarships and/or industrial support will be explored for the long-term continuation of the project.

Objective

This support action, EURO-DOTS, is aimed primarily at improving the offering and the quality of training proposed to European PhD students. It helps fulfilling the requirements for ECTS credits imposed to PhD students by major European universities for obtaining the Doctoral (PhD) degree in Engineering.\n\nA coherent set of advanced courses in micro/nano-electronics, explicitly accredited by major European universities in the framework of their Doctoral Program, will be made easily accessible to European PhD students, offering the opportunity to collect ECTS credits throughout Europe.\n\nThe global objective of EURO-DOTS is to create a delocalized (virtual) platform to serve the Doctoral Schools in Europe in micro/nano-electronics.\n\nThe courses will respect specific organization criteria (short, intensive one-week course modules with optional exam) that will make them very flexible, accessible and attractive as well for high-level continuous education of engineers from industry.\n\nScholarships will be made available to selected PhD students for boosting the start-up of the project, while other sources of scholarships and/or industrial support will be explored for the long-term continuation of the project.
