TP1: Doctoral programme of the universities (the 10 cantonal universities and 2 ETHs)
This programme is funded within the framework of the federal project contributions 2017-2020. The implementation and the financing of the project contributions 2017-2020 are subject to the decisions of the Parliament.
The sub-project TP1 is the successor to the currently running SUK programme P-1 "Doctoral programmes" (2013-2016), which has the goal of improving the appeal and quality of doctoral education and of the doctorate as well as of the career prospects of doctoral candidates. It supports the universities by annual contributions to the development, expansion and the running of doctoral programmes which best complement the existing institutional structures.
TP1 is subdivided into two "pillars".
