I am delighted to announce that I have been granted the additional title of Doctor Europaeus that highlights the significant European dimension of PhDs.
The title is granted upon the university's proposal when the following conditions are met:
1. At least two professors from two higher education institutions of two European countries, other than the one where the thesis is defended, have given their review of the manuscript;
2. At least one member of the jury comes from a higher education institution in another European country, other than the one, where the thesis is defended;
3. The viva has taken place in one of the official languages, other than the one(s) of the country, where the thesis is defended;
4. The thesis must partly have been prepared as a result of a research period of at least six months spent in another European country.
