Call for International SHS Partnership Projects

To promote the international dimension of doctoral training in the field of human and social sciences (SHS), Aix-Marseille University has set up since 2015 a programme to finance thesis projects in partnership with Casa de Velázquez (CdV) and the French school in Rome (EFR). This funding program, coordinated by the Doctoral College (CD), is open to doctoral schools in the SHS sector. As such, two doctoral contracts are used as support for the financing of thesis projects within the framework of this program, one doctoral contract per partner.
