Funded by the Niilo Helander Foundation, a 30 000 euros grant is proposed for 2019, for a PhD cotutelle grant in any fields of research between France and Finland.

International cotutelle of thesis cotutelle is a mechanism that promotes mobility among doctoral candidates while encouraging scientific cooperation between French and foreign research teams. Candidates conduct their research under the oversight of, and with guidance from, a dissertation adviser from each of the two countries involved in the program. Working jointly, both advisers provide a full measure of supervision for the candidate.

The candidate conducts his research in the two countries under the terms of the agreement governing the program.  This agreement may introduce more flexibility in the definition of these terms and allows adapting the general framework for each student therefore improving the proper progress of the doctoral studies.
