The PhD programme of the Agreenium international research facility, EIR-A

The aim of the EIR-A is to improve the employability of PhD students through international opportunities and an awareness of the major challenges of society. A total of 45 PhD students enrolled with one of the accredited members or supervised by a researcher or lecturer-researcher of one of its members benefit from this programme every year.

What is the EIR-A programme?
Since 2011, the EIR-A has offered PhD students carrying out their research work in a laboratory of an Agreenium member additional PhD training to expand their professional awareness. 
This is based on European benchmarks whereby the PhD student is deemed to be a young professional. 

The EIR-A programme supplements the doctoral training given by the institution in which the student is enrolled. 

Its prime objective is to prepare young scientists to take up international positions by highlighting their professional career. 

EIR-A PhD students enjoy residential seminars, a scientific stay abroad, an electronic skills notebook and personalised support centred on integrating the student’s skills from an employability perspective.
