To establish sustainable collaboration between TUL and UIS the project will make use of several activities, which are as follows:

1. Individual visits of academic and administrative staff at the partner university.
2. Workshops for PhD students and their lectures.
3. Summer School.
4. A manual written in English at both universities, providing constructive guidance on how to begin doctoral studies in the given country.
5. Documentation of selected doctoral programs will be reviewed and where necessary updated in English and the national language. This will form the basis for analyzing possibilities for harmonization of related programmes in order to prepare agreements on “double degree diplomas”.
