This new training and research program will be offered by the University of Klagenfurt in cooperation with the University of Genoa (coordinator), UPC Barcelona, TU Eindhoven, and Queen Mary (University of London). The doctoral school is expected to offer about 40 PhD scholarships in five classes from fall 2010 until 2017.
Erasmus Mundus promotes scientific excellence and mobility in higher education in Europe. The selection process of the doctoral schools was very competitive: Out of about 150 proposals, 13 proposals have been selected. Klagenfurt is the only Austrian university participating in an Erasmus Mundus doctorate program.
