One of the necessity every partners agreed on at an early stage of this project was the development of a PhD portal. This portal will focus on the internationalization of PhD Studies. The idea here, is to provide two types of information:
- Funding opportunities abroad to facilitate the access to administrative procedures, information about each partner’s PhD programs, internship and funding offers. The PhD Portal includes a link towards OPEN4YEBO!, a platform acting as a Funding Tool for which YEBO! subscribed for 7000 licenses available for free for PhD students in South Africa, providing them access to funding opportunities for their research.
- Training tools, offering the material from the conferences and training sessions. After each YEBO! activity, the relevant material (presentations from conferences, lectures and useful documentation from trainings, etc.) is uploaded on the Portal to make it accessible to a wider audience and broaden the impact of the activity.
The PhD portal was Launched in November 2018 during the Mid-Term Meeting in Berlin.
