Research Approach

We strive to provide all it takes to enable our students to reach the highest levels of scholarly achievement.

As supervisors, we will help PhD students define their research questions, which will drive their studies for an intensive three-year period. We are active in many international and national research projects from which you may draw inspiration to shape your own idea. To get you started we have compiled a list of potential topics, and please contact us to get the list.

We will offer close and thorough guidance covering all aspects of research. We will be supportive but will also help you develop a critical mind, of fundamental relevance to assess other people’s work and to place your own with respect to the state of the art.

You will also learn how to develop your skills on academic writing, scientific presentation, and defining publication strategies.

You will have the opportunity to be exposed to a large, international network of collaborators by to taking active participation in project meetings, summer schools, and other training events. We will encourage to you build your own network by helping you disseminate your research at conferences and other symposia.
