The PromoDoc initiative promotes doctoral study in European Union countries. The University of Illinois, with three, is the only US university to have multiple PromoDoc ambassadors.
PromoDoc consortium members Campus France and the Institute of International Education selected the ambassadors based on their extensive experience in European higher education.
PromoDoc is a project funded by the European Commission within the framework of the Erasmus Mundus Action 3 (EM A3) program, focusing on the promotion of European higher education at the doctoral level. The project aims to showcase the attractiveness of doctoral-level study in Europe; improve awareness of opportunities for doctoral study; facilitate access to European doctoral programs among students in third countries, especially in the Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and the United States.
The three-year project is being implemented by an international consortium, led by Campus France and composed of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Nuffic, the British Council, Eurodoc (The European Council of Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers), and the Institute of International Education.
