Joint doctoral programme between Helsinki and Karolinska

The Faculty of Medicine at the University of Helsinki and the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm will establish a joint biomedicine doctoral programme. The first students are starting this autumn.
The students will work at both universities and will be awarded their degrees both in Helsinki and Stockholm. The objective of the programme is to strengthen the scientific cooperation between the two institutions. For the University of Helsinki, this will be the closest cooperation project ever.

The idea for the cooperation was conceived in the League of European Research Universities (LERU), where both universtities are members. LERU aims to promote the status of basic research in Europe, and one of its most important goals is to develop bi- and multilateral researcher education programmes. In the future, the doctoral programme of the University of Helsinki and the Karolinska Institutet might also include other LERU universities.
