As a preliminary, the first of the sessions will begin at 17:00 p.m. and will address the main and general aspects of doctoral studies. It will be the EID staff themselves who will explain the steps to follow for access to the highest level of university education.

According to Pilar Abad, director of the International Doctoral School, these studies "are the highest academic degree, a very complete training to become a researcher and develop a career in the Academy or in the company."
Doctoral programs "promote competencies and skills related to quality scientific research and allow interaction with other national and international researchers," says Abad. "The students of these programs are the cornerstone of future research, they will be the response to current and upcoming global challenges, such as the climate crisis," the EID director qualifies.
