Una Cultural Heritage - Podcast #5 on a vibrant community

Heritage is a source of common identity and cohesion among all eight Una Europa universities, bringing together academics and researchers in a vibrant community of experts. This Una Europa community is hosting PhD workshops, offering open online lectures, working on joint research projects and, most recently, turning Una-Her-Doc, a joint PhD programme into reality.

In the fifth episode of the Una Europa Podcast, Dr Markus Edler, Chair of Una Europa's Doctoral Training Cluster, speaks to Professor Maria Gravari-Barbas from Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne about the amazing opportunities that arise from working in the Una Europa Cultural Heritage community. Gain first-hand insights into our new Joint Doctorate, Una-Her-Doc, which is open for applications now. Listen to two PhD candidates, Sabine Volk and Virginia de Diego, who participated in the Una Europa Cultural Heritage PhD Workshop over the last year, and provide a testimonial of their experiences.

" In 2030, I really would like to find students who will be able to move from one university to another, having always the feeling that they move to their own university. "

Maria Gravari-Barbas from Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne about the student experience in the University of the Future.

" A beautiful way to re-cover a European feeling (in pandemic times). "

Virginia de Diego on the PhD Workshop in Cultural Heritage, which due to Covid was turned into a series of online events instead of a one-off workshop.
