UCF PhD candidates

University Campus Fryslân started in 2011 as a network organization of institutions of higher education active in Leeuwarden and the governing bodies Province of Fryslân and Municipality of Leeuwarden.

The Province of Fryslân funded 35 PhD projects, which were granted to six universities: University of Groningen, Wageningen University, University of Twente, Technical University of Delft, Leiden University and University of Amsterdam. The six universities cooperate with knowledge institutions in Leeuwarden/Fryslân, like Wetsus, Dairy Campus, Stenden, Noordelijke Hogeschool Leeuwarden (NHL), Van Hall Larenstein (VHL), Medical Centre Leeuwarden (MCL), Fryske Akademy (FA), Waddenacademie (WA), Philips, Tresoar and Partoer. These Frisian knowledge institutions host the PhD researchers.

Below you will find the UCF PhD researchers.

As from 1 January 2016 University of Groningen/Campus Fryslân continued the activities of UCF, which means offering a PhD training programme and monitoring and reporting about the progress of the PhD projects under supervision of the participating universities.
