Shared commitment for the implementation of approved EU programmes and contracts
Following the implementation of the project’s multiyear programming in the framework of ERASMUS PIC (1993-1996) , SOCRATES-CDA 1996-2000 – implementation phase and CDA-D (2000-01), dedicated to the project’s development and diffusion, the European doctorate became a fully implemented project that continues to move forward, and has become a long-term acquisition thanks to the contributions of the Socrates programme and the Marie Curie Multipartner Organisation. The 13 universities in the network have pledged to a “shared commitment” in the development of activities and other approved programmes linked to the European doctorate (see the long list of the approved contracts).
