International Academic Networks

International Academic Networks
The Doctoral School is a member of several international academic networks:

The Erasmus Programme
(European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students)

This programme allows students at PhD level to study abroad and incoming students to take courses at ELTE’s Doctoral School of Sociology.

The European PhD in Socio-Economic and Statistical Studies

The European PhD in Socio-Economic and Statistical Studies is an international, interdisciplinary graduate programme involving nine partner universities. Upon completion of the programme the doctoral degree Doctor Europaeus is awarded. 

European Graduate School for the Social Sciences

International Doctoral Seminar in Social Sciences, Telč, Czech Republic. Organised by the Faculty of Social Studies, Masaryk University, Brno.
PhD students in sociology, political science, European studies, public policy (or public economics), social policy and social work, media studies, social psychology and other social sciences from universities associated with EUSOC are invited to submit their papers for the next EUSOC international seminar.

The European Crossdisciplinary Doctoral College of The Social And Human Sciences (SHS)

The aim of this programme is to develop structured exchanges of doctoral students, either jointly directed or jointly supervised, between the partner institutions. It also seeks to promote best practices regarding doctoral supervision and to encourage close collaboration on research beyond the doctoral level, involving a crossdisciplinary scientific community.

European Identity, Cultural Diversity and Political Change Marie Curie Actions – EUinDepth 2014-2018

This research project brings together 8 European universities and research centres from France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Portugal, Italy, Belgium, Poland, Hungary (EU MS countries), Moldova (AC) and 7 participating institutions from the Russian Federation (third country). It builds on existing cooperation within international networks and associations of European Studies and will enhance the already active collaboration in the fields of European identity and cultural diversity. The establishment of this staff exchange program will in addition promote and strengthen the complementarity of the participants involved and will boost collaborative research activities.

CiCe (Children’s Identity and Citizenship in Europe) is an Erasmus Academic Network
supported by the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme

The network integrates about 100 higher education institutions from 30 countries in Europe. The aim of the network is to increase cooperation and to develop a common interest in the way in which children and young people learn about citizenship and construct their identities in a European context. The network helps to create a European approach to these matters as part of a European Higher Education Area. Every year the network organises a summer school for young graduate and post-graduate students where students share their research experiences in the field of the identity and citizenship of young people. The summer school counts on the participation of students from our Doctoral School.
