Each year, as part of a partnership between Université catholique de Louvain and KU Leuven, a prestigious, fully funded (4 years) joint (double) PhD project will be offered.

It's our pleasure to announce that my group and the groups of Prof. Molina Lopez and Prof. Merckling will host such project this year!
