PEARL is a doctoral programme held by the I-SITE ULNE. It is co-funded by the Marie curie COFUND actions within the framework of the European Commission’s H2020 programme. It funds the recruitment of 30 PhD students who will work on interdisciplinary research projects related to the scientific themes of I-SITE ULNE. The first wave of recruitment is open now, until April.


PEARL will follow the "3i" of a MSC Cofund projects thanks to interdisciplinary research projects, international research placements in partner universities and intersectorial secondments in companies for the PhD students. The programme is supported by 34 partners, including the founding members of I-SITE ULNE, 3 prestigious cross-border universities, 9 companies, 5 doctoral training institutions and 2 housing partners.
