European Doctorate on Information Technology

Objective

The EDITH consortium possesses unique training capabilities in all fields related to Information Technology (IT), starting from microelectronics manufacturing process (DUT, CEA-LETI, IMEC), to device modelling (UB-ARCES, INPG) and circuit and systems design (UB-ARCES, DUT, SCD-K.U.Leuven), and from signal processing, wireless, ad-hoc, and computer communication, and non-linear dynamics and complexity (ARCES, EPFL-I and C, SCD-K.U.Leuven) to high level applications (ARCES, EPFL-I and C). Exploiting the research and teaching excellence in the above fields in a fully synergic way, the consortium aims to provide doctoral training programs for students coming mainly from (but not limited to) European countries in highly qualified Institutions.

More specifically, the objectives of the Doctorate program may be summarized as follows:
1. To broaden the spectrum and the breath of competence of young researchers in the field of IT;
2. To give them research skills necessary to obtain specialist knowledge of subjects pertinent to IT;
3. To provide them the ability to use logical and lateral thinking needed to achieve creative and innovative solutions to engineering problems;
4. To bring together the unique teaching and research features of highly qualified European University and Research Centres with complementary expertise working on the fields of Electronics, Information and Communication Technologies.
5. To create a link between academic and industrial bodies in Europe. The final goal of the EDITH programme is to set up the basis for creating the first European Ph.D. program in Information Technology, which is formally recognized by the consortium member States.
