Before the end of the first academic year, doctoral students will elaborate a “research plan” that will include at least the methodology to be used and the objectives to be reached, as well as the means and the temporary planning to achieve it. This plan can be improved throughout their stay in the doctoral programme and must be supported by the supervisor and the director.

The Academic Committee yearly assesses the research plan and the activities document together with the reports issued by the supervisor and the director. The positive evaluation will be a requirement to be able to continue in the programme. In the event of a negative evaluation, which must be supported, the doctoral students must be assessed again within six months. In order to do so they must develop a new research plan. In the event of a new negative evaluation of the doctoral student, the programme will be ended definitely.
