Description

About the Department

The PhD plays a key role in the overlap between the EHEA and the ERA, both of which are fundamental pillars of our knowledge-based society. Moreover, research is a very important part of higher education, in particular university higher education, as the change in the productive model towards a sustainable economy places PhDs as key actors in society to generate and transfer knowledge in an appropriate way.

Moreover, one of the great challenges of today's society is health and well-being. To this end, we need to develop and maintain high-quality health and care systems that are economically sustainable and whose developments and advances are based on proven scientific evidence.
