Doctoral candidates must perform their training/research period in at least two different European countries represented in the consortium (Italy – Unitn, United Kingdom – QMUL, Germany – FUB); each of this mobility periods must be instrumental to the fulfilment of the programme and last for at least six months (not necessarily consecutive).
For category B fellowship holders, two of the countries visited during the EMJD activities must be different from the country in which the doctoral candidate has obtained his/her last degree (doctoral candidates with a joint, multiple, double degree can select the award country of their choice).
Doctoral candidates must spend at least two thirds of their doctoral programme in Europe. However, if the EMJD consortium includes third-countries partners and/or associated members:
- Category A fellowship holders can spend a training/research/fieldwork period of a maximum duration of one semester (i.e. 6 months, consecutive or cumulative) in these countries, periods in excess of this duration may not be covered by the EMJD fellowship;
- Category B fellowship holders can spend up to one year (cumulative or consecutive) of their doctorate activities in these countries, periods in excess of this duration may not be covered by the EMJD fellowship.
