Graduate School Programme for International Researchers and Interdisciplinary Training

Graduate SPIRIT is an EU Erasmus+ funded project. The participating partners are nine European graduate schools with a similar profile.

The project will provide an inventory of best practices in graduate schools with respect to PhD candidates, staff, curriculum and organisation. In addition, the project will test a number of innovations regarding international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral doctoral training.

The goal is to create a ‘menu’ from which graduate schools can select and implement elements according to their needs.
