On The January 29, 2019


The general meeting of the Council for Doctoral Education of the European University Association (EUA-CDE) was held on June 7 and 8, 2018 at the University of Ljubljana, on the Council’s tenth anniversary. The theme was “Excellence through Diversity – Doctoral education in a globalized world”.

Four representatives from the Université de Lyon took part in this general assembly, joining about one hundred participants from European universities. To give more substance to the debates, the EUA-CDE general assembly also included presentations from Chinese, Japanese, South Korean, South African and American universities.

Participants attended plenary conferences and workshops covering topics related to the theme of the event: “Excellence through Diversity – Doctoral education in a globalized world”. This was an opportunity to capture a full picture and discuss how doctoral education is changing: it is becoming increasingly international, programs are multiplying and the student body is becoming more diverse, etc.

Through its involvement in the EUA, the Université de Lyon aims to launch more projects on a European scale. Additionally, the visibility it acquires through the EUA enables it to better promote projects run at the Lyon Saint-Étienne site.
