INPATH-TES is a network of institutions with a common goal of developing doctoral training on Thermal Energy Storage. The current strategy to achieve the objectives of the project is based on bilateral agreements between consortium universities, to perform joint PhD supervisions, also called co-tutelles.

The students willing to achieve the recognition of INPATH-TES label should contact two partner universities or institutions to join their own doctoral programme under joint PhD supervision, and achieve the needed milestones. Please see below for a list of participating universities.

To be awarded the INPATH-TES label, the PhD candidate must fulfil the following requirements:

  • The student will have to take at least 20 ECTS from lessons within the INPATH-TES programme;
  • The student has to carry out an internship or secondment to a third partner from the INPATH-TES consortium for at least 2 months;
  • The student should have published at least 1 scientific journal paper with co-authors from 3 institutions from INPATH-TES consortium;
  • The student should have attended at least 1 INPATH-TES workshop/training school;
  • The student should contact two partner universities or institutions from the list below and arrange a formal agreement for enrollment of a joint PhD programme with INPATH-TES label.
