    • the doctoral school requirements,
    • the discipline-specific course offer within each of the three doctoral schools (DS BS&H, DS H&LS, DS S&T).

  • Dr Ilse Van Damme coordinates the generic course offer and all initiatives with respect to the career development of junior researchers. She is also an internal trainer. Ilse is the contact person for everything related to skills development and career management.

  • Lia Van Hoef is responsible for the doctoral schools' mobility call and provides support with respect to DS courses, specific DS projects and portfolios.

  • Hilde Vanderheyden and Sofie Jans┬áprovide administrative and logistic support.
