Higher Education Institutions, research units and doctoral departments from the 27 EU Member States will be invited to take part in events within the scope of the PromoDoc project.

Dates of next scheduled events:

  • September 27th to October 2nd, 2013, Seoul and Busan, South Korea
    Organised by Nuffic, on behalf of the PromoDoc consortium, the event will consist of four days (two days in Seoul and two in Busan). Each day starts with student information sessions, followed by scheduled appointments between potential doctoral candidates and representatives from European higher education institutions and research institutes. Here is the general event agenda:
    • 27/09: VIP reception with South Korean HEIs
    • 28-29/09: Targeted appointments with South Korean students in Seoul
    • 30/09: Travel to Busan
    • 1-2/10: Targeted appointments with South Korean students in Busan

Targeted appointments:

In order to facilitate the appointments, European participants will have full access to the information provided by the potential doctoral candidates and will be able to proactively invite those that have registered to an appointment. The potential doctoral candidates will also be entitled to invite the registered European HEIs and research institutes for a meeting via the online appointment tool that will be accessible before the event.

NB: This event is not comparable to an education fair, where a larger and more diverse public is attracted. This event aims specifically at candidates for doctoral studies. European HEIs will each be given their own table setting in order to speak personally with the potential doctoral candidates.

Participation fee: 500 Euro

Deadline for applications: the official deadline has expired!


Application pack:

In 2012, the same event format has been organised in Japan, Tokyo and Kyoto, from the 20th to the 23rd of November.

In addition, the PromoDoc team regularly participates in European fairs in Asia to promote doctoral-level study in Europe. After the appointment of Singapore in September 2012 and of Hong Kong in March 2013, one more fair will follow this year: Taiwan in October.
