How to set up a Joint Doctorate – guide book

This guide book is targeted to the future project coordinators, partners, universities willing to establish a joint doctorate programme (especially by the means of applying for external funds). It can be used in many ways:

1/ learn the experience of a project coordinator in the Horizon 2020 project,

2/ see how a sample project was done from the scratch till the end,

3/ hear about some solutions that were proposed and were successfull

4/ and last but not least: you can use any part of the text provided in this guide as part of your next proposal. So you may find some ready-to-use solutions regarding the Excellence, Impact and Implementation parts of your proposal.

Here is the link to the download page with full text of the guide book.
