Aims: The doctoral programme in “Local Development and International Cooperation” is intended to provide the students the necessary methodological tools for both basic and applied research in the field of local development and cooperation. The main aim is to train researchers with a solid scientific basis on issues related to local development and cooperation in various territorial areas. Therefore, it aims to: - Training researchers to be able to develop basic and applied research relating to the issue of Local Development and its implications in the relevant territory at the national and international context. - Ensuring students to acquire knowledge and be able to perform critical analyses in this field of study. - Providing students the necessary resources to become able to communicate the results of their research to the academic community. - Encouraging the transfer of knowledge in the form of publications, conventions, or other modalities, both in academic field as compared to other development stakeholders and society in general.

Description: The Doctoral Studies in “Local Development and International Cooperation” comes from the fusion of two inter-university doctoral studies from the universities of Valencia and Jaume I of Castelló: Doctoral Studies in “Local Development and Territory” and Doctoral Studies in “Development Aid”, managed by the Inter-university Institute for Local Development. The Universitat Politècnica de València has joined this proposal, so the interdisciplinary and interuniversity nature of this programme constitutes one of its main strengths. The Doctoral Programme in “Local Development and International Cooperation” is intended to provide the students with the necessary methodological tools for both basic and applied research in the field of local development and cooperation in various territorial fields. The research in the field of local development is especially important because it may contribute to the understanding of the processes and to the improvement of politics and intervention measures in the territory, thus contributing to improve its inhabitants’ quality of life. Likewise, researchers with the proper preparation in planning technics, programmes management and assessment and cooperation projects are required, who provide solutions to the problems of development in different territories and countries. The doctoral programme consists of four research lines and doctors from the three universities participate in each of them: 1.- Line of Land planning and social cohesion 2.- Line of International Development Aid and Territory 3.- Line of Land, Learning Networks and Innovation 4.- Line of Water economy
