QUSTEC is a doctoral training programme set up by the European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC) Eucor – The European Campus. The programme offers 39 early stage researcher (ESR) positions and outstanding training opportunities within the field of Quantum Science and Technology, in a highly international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral setting. The ESR positions each last 48 months and culminate in the award of a doctoral degree.

The doctoral research will be carried out at one of the following institutions:

QUSTEC aims to address some of the grand challenges in Quantum Science today: the principles of quantum mechanics, which govern physics, chemistry, material science and computing at the atomic scale have already led to a wave of new technologies. In new applications, quantum technologies provide a massive leap that can be a decisive factor for many European industries and markets in the 21st century.


PhD training programme

For each doctoral researcher, QUSTEC will implement a 3-tiered training structure, building on the seven principles for innovative doctoral training. This training is focused on maximizing each ESR’s employability after their training, enabling them to become future research leaders. QUSTEC training is overseen and monitored by an individualised training panel consisting of supervisor, co-supervisor and mentor. Each project includes a secondment to an industrial partner with a duration between 2 and 6 months. The training objectives will be carried out over the course of four years:

  • Four transferable skills trainings (also as part of the respective graduate programmes)

  • (At least) one high level publication and two other dissemination activities (such as conference contributions)

  • Three outreach/public engagement/citizen science/science education activities (such as workshops in schools, press interviews, etc.)
