Doctorate (PhD)

Training in research and through research
The doctorate (PhD equivalent) is a three-year training programme in research and through research after a Master's degree (secondary school leaving certificate + 5) or equivalent. 

It leads to the awarding of a PhD. These days, a PhD is an essential prerequisite for any student keen to become involved in research, either in a public research body or within major companies or international bodies. It is THE reference degree recognised internationally. 

The PhD is also a first professional experience. The PhD student can acquire not just scientific skills in a multitude of disciplines but also expand his knowledge of the economic world. The national doctorate framework is laid down by the Order of 25 May 2016. 

The eighteen Agreenium members are involved extensively in doctorate training by welcoming some 2,500 PhD students into their laboratories and through their involvement with doctoral schools. 
Accreditation for awarding a PhD
Agreenium is accredited to award the PhD under the ABIES doctoral school from the start of the 2016 academic year. 

The University of Lorraine (ENSAIA and ENSTIB) and the INP of Toulouse (ENSAT) along with AgroParis Tech, Agrocampus Ouest, Montpellier SupAgro and Oniris are also accredited to award the PhD. 
These four engineering colleges award some 200 PhD every year. The members are accredited jointly under fifteen doctoral schools with specific disciplines or themes forming part of the site logics. 
Setting up a doctoral college
Created by the decree relating to the organisation of the Institute, the Doctoral College, established on 11 May 2016, comprises one representative per member, the Director of the Doctoral School ABIES, a PhD student and the Director of the Institute. Its mission is to suggest a doctoral training policy, boost the legibility and appeal, especially internationally, of the doctoral training of its members and, more broadly, research and French agricultural training, promote the careers of PhD graduates, especially in business and internationally and encourage the development of doctoral modules offered.  
Doctoral training courses
One priority that the doctoral college has set itself is setting up specific doctoral paths and the pooling of doctoral training modules between members. 
The Institute offers a doctoral path of excellence within the Agreenium international research facility (EIR-A)

Agreenium-Wur partnerships
As part of its policy of developing international “research and training” partnerships, Agreenium and the Animal Sciences Group of the Wageningen University and Research (WUR) initiated collaborations in 2013. 
 The objective is to capitalize on the links between the WUR and the research teams of INRA to include a capacity building component based on existing collaborations. The Capacity building program on Animal Sciences between Agreenium and the WUR is based on four types of activities, each one managed by a pair of Agreenium and WUR members: 
 • PhD training: Development of a joint doctoral degree programme; reflects ambition to be leading in the domain; one procedure for a joint PhD degree ; 
• MSc education: Development of double degree programs; a balanced bidirectional inflow of French and Dutch students in order to develop the attractiveness of a double degree programme ; 
• Life-long learning: To develop joint activities, such as a joint event, a joint course for international companies and/or single guest lectures in existing courses; to develop joint European projects such as strategic partnerships to begin building close cooperation in connection with industries ; 
• Summer schools / Master classes: Development of joint summer school each year on major common topics;

Agreenium and Wageningen Academy organize a Summer School on agroecology and animal production from Monday 26 until Thursday 29 June 2017 in Clermont-Ferrand (center of France), a VetAgro Sup Campus. This Summer School is for professionals and PhD'ers. The number of participants to the course is limited to 30. The final registration date is 8 May 2017.  

The objectives of this course is to introduce the participants to the principles behind a Global One Health and to be able to apply these principles to health challenges. 

The course is aimed at M.S. and Ph.D candidates who are interested to learn more about the concepts of one-health and who want to see how the various disciplines of one-health interact with each other.
