This program is designed to equip students with strong interdisciplinary skills for developing innovative and effective research. After a pre-doctoral year intended to strengthen methodological capacities in the various behavioral and social sciences areas, the students selected have three years to prepare their thesis. The program aims to train very high-level researchers and decision-makers, capable of responding to the challenges of development on the scale of the African continent.
