PhD Hub

By connecting researchers, enterprises and society at large, the PhD Hub promotes intersectoral, interdisciplinary or international collaboration and fosters innovation. The PhD Hub was initiated through a series of activities organised by the European University Foundation: the platform was developed as part of the European PhD Hub project (2017-2020) and was re-developed and improved as part of the DocEnhance project. The platform will be further refined during the course of DocTalent4EU and will become an integral part of the Local Talent Management Centres.
