Aims: The doctoral studies shall, at minimum, guarantee the acquisition by the doctoral students of the basic competencies which are in the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education, specifically: systematic understanding of a field of study of legal sciences, and mastery of its skills and methods of research; ability to conceive, design or create, implement and adapt a substantial process of research and creation; ability to make a critical and assessment analysis, and synthesis of new and complex ideas, as well as communication with the academic and scientific community and society in general about their fields of knowledge; and and ability to promote, within academic and professional contexts, scientific, technological, social, artistic or cultural advance in a knowledge-based society. The main aim is the development and defence of a doctoral thesis in Finances, in which process the doctoral student must provide an extensive professional training in various fields, especially those that require creativity and innovation. It shall provide skills to cope with contexts with little specific information, find the key questions that must be answered to solve a complex problem, design, create, develop and launch new and innovative projects in their field of knowledge, etc.


The Interuniversity Doctoral Programme in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology proposed finds its origins in the National School of Molecular Materials which has been developing biennially since 1992. This School has allowed the articulation and consolidation of a scientific community in the area of Nanoscience and Molecular Materials (it has currently constituted as a specialised group in the Royal Spanish Chemistry Society) in Spain. On the other hand, the School has decisively contributed to the training of several young scientifics. Since 2007, this doctoral programme’s training period was structured around the Interuniversity Master’s degree in ‘Nanoscience and Molecular Nanotechnology’, (resolution 5 October 2009) and currently counts with the participation of the Universities of Valencia (coordinator), Alicante, Castilla-La Mancha, Jaume I de Castelló, La Laguna, Autónoma de Madrid and Valladolid. This doctoral programme received, in October 2011, and excellency award by the Ministry of Education. This doctoral programme also received a quality award in the first call since the day the programme was created.
