The programme «TP2: Cooperation between the Swiss universities of applied sciences and arts / Swiss universities of teacher education (UASA/UTE) and the Swiss universities» envisages the support of cooperative projects in the field of doctoral courses, between the Swiss universities on the one hand and the Swiss UASA/UTE on the other. The funded cooperative projects will be established and implemented jointly by the partners UASA/UTE and universities. Each one is contributing its specific specialist skills and securing the quality of the doctoral courses offered. The goal is to cooperate effectively to support the doctoral students working at the UASA/UTE. The responsible persons at the various types of higher education institutions join together in providing this supervision. The doctoral degrees are issued by the Swiss universities.

Objectives:

  • Consolidating the cooperation between the Swiss universities and the Swiss UASAs/UTE in the field of doctorates
  • Strengthening young talent with a UASA/UTE profile

Project applications could be submitted in three categories. However, funding for a single cooperative project could also be applied for in more than one category.

Category A: Doctoral programmes

A doctoral degree is the sum of three components: a dissertation or doctoral thesis, doctoral studies (individual or as part of a programme of doctoral studies) and awarding of the doctoral degree. A doctoral programme is a structured course of education. It can have the following objectives:

  • acquisition of cross-functional skills
  • the induction of the doctoral candidate into a national and/or international scientific community
  • deeper knowledge of a particular discipline

Category B: Other forms of cooperation for preparing doctorates

This category includes more than one doctoral programme and can include support activities for doctoral students. This can also involve a group of professors and doctoral candidates who work together on a research topic based on cooperation between universities, UASAs and UTE – however, without being specifically attached to a doctoral programme.

Category C: Other joint activities in the area of doctoral studies

Category C includes other joint activities in the area of doctoral studies such as workshops for those supporting the doctoral students as well as the doctoral students themselves.
