Research topics

Prior to application, applicants must:

  • Have their own formal doctoral research topic proposal. The research proposal must be original and innovative. Moreover, it must be clear, goal-oriented and its completion must be feasible within a maximum period of four years.

  • Have the support and agreement on the doctoral research proposal by a professor at KU Leuven; namely, have a promoter at KU Leuven. Please visit the websites of the Doctoral Schools at KU Leuven to find out about the research topics of each of the professors:

  • Have the support and agreement on the doctoral research proposal by a local co-promoter back at the applicant’s home country or where most of the research will be carried out and which must be one of the countries on the OCDE DAC table that are considered as: Least Developed Countries, Low Income Countries or Low Middle Income Countries. This ensures embeddedness of the research within the country’s context. The local co-promoter must be affiliated with a university or research institute and must possess the scientific knowledge required to supervise the project as a promoter would do; therefore, being an authority in the matter and the institution itself, according to the rules and regulations proper to the researcher’s university or research institute.
