International Doctorate programmes

To improve mobility among doctoral students and to provide opportunities for study periods abroad to complement their research, the University of Padova promotes close links with universities in other European Union countries, and encourages inter-university co-operation for the purpose of developing jointly-run and tutored doctorate courses.

  Erasmus Mundus Doctoral Programmes

As of 2014, Erasmus Mundus – Action 1 does no longer exist as such and there will not be future calls for application: Joint programmes at Doctoral level (former EM-Action 1 B) are now funded in the framework of the new EU programme for Research and Innovation – Horizon 2020 - Marie Skodowska-Curie Actions.

FONASO - Forest and Nature for Society
In FONASO, the emphasis is on applied research. Doctoral candidates will therefore typically do fieldwork (in a wide sense) and are encouraged, starting already in the project formulation phase, to carry out fieldwork in connection with stays at Associate Partners, who may contribute with hosting and co-supervision functions. The consortium is coordinated by Københavns Universitet (Denmark). The other partners are: University of Wales (United Kingdom), Technische Universität Dresden (Germany), Georg-August-Universität Göttingen (Germany), AgroParisTech - École interne ENGREF (France), Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet (Sweden).
