The goal of the Doctoral School is to ensure a high-quality study experience, as well as a space to develop professional competences in a cross-disciplinary environment.


  • To create a one-stop agency to exchange information about ways to develop various competences;
  • To provide consultations on research design, data processing and interpretation, writing, publishing strategies and project preparation;
  • To organise seminars, workshops and various activities for the development of research competences;
  • To foster networking for doctoral candidates and researchers.
