About this session

Binational PhDs (cotutelles) have three clear merits: enhancing the doctoral experience, furthering collaboration between researchers and promoting the internationalisation of two institutions. They can, however, be an administrative nightmare. In this session, we would like to share our positive experiences, highlight ways to overcome hurdles and show the potential of this tool for scientific collaboration, capacity-building and internationalisation.
