UniPID DocNet

UniPID DocNet - The Finnish development research doctoral network 

The goal of UniPID DocNet is to support the interdisciplinary training and networking of development research doctoral students based in Finnish universities. Complementary UniPID DocNet training aims particularly to strengthen those theoretic-methodological skills of students which are specific to development research and research on or related to developing countries.

By bringing together both doctoral candidates and their supervisors, UniPID DocNet aims to facilitate peer support and the establishment of relevant academic contacts. This enables the exchange of information and experiences, and possible extra supervision, which in turn enhances the quality of training and facilitates the creation of new partnerships.
