Being a PhD student at BETA

The PhD program, which lasts an average of three years, is dedicated to writing a thesis at BETA. This program is conducted within the Augustin Cournot Doctoral School (ED 221) of the University of Strasbourg or the Doctoral School of Legal, Political, Economic, and Management Sciences (ED SJPEG) of the University of Lorraine.

During the preparation of their thesis, PhD students are introduced to research in close collaboration with their thesis supervisor(s) and participate in the numerous scientific activities of BETA on its different sites. BETA’s scientific policy is particularly focused on good support for its doctoral students: they are all provided with an office, suitable computer equipment, and dedicated financial support for their participation in national and international conferences.

There are many sources of funding, most of which cover three years of research: for example, doctoral contracts (awarded by the State via the Doctoral Schools), doctoral allowances from the Grand-Est region, and CIFRE contracts in partnership with a company.
