LUXDOC

A young organization of PhD candidates and junior researchers. It is open to all PhD candidates and junior researchers working in Luxembourg as well as to Luxembourgish PhD candidates and young researchers abroad.

The number of young researchers and PhD candidates in Luxembourg has considerably grown over recent years. Their contribution in shaping the country’s academic landscape is thus considerable. LuxDoc was thus born out of the need to create a representative body which would allow PhD candidates and junior researchers to engage in ongoing scientific and political debates.

For its members, LuxDoc wants to be a social as well as a scientific exchange platform.
