26 October 2022: UKRAINET #Stand With Ukraine Webinar Series: “PhD in Ukraine”

Many Ukrainian PhD students, who had to flee the war brutally waged by the russian federation against Ukraine, are currently hosted by foreign universities and research institutes. In addition to supporting these individual scholars at risk, development of joint PhD supervision (cotutelle) of these scholars and/or exploring the opportunities for the establishment of joint PhD programmes with Ukrainian HEIs and research institutes of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine could be beneficial to mitigate the devastating effects of the war on the Ukrainian science system and to counteract brain drain in the mid-/long term.

This information webinar aims to provide a brief overview of the (recently reformed) process of gaining a PhD degree in Ukraine. It is aimed at international researchers hosting (or planning to host) Ukrainian PhD students for a short research stay or enrolling them into their PhD programmes, as well as at research managers and HE administrators involved in the doctoral training and interested at developing mutually beneficial collaborative relations with Ukrainian HEIs and research organizations.
