What is LuxDoc ?

LuxDoc a.s.b.l. is a young organization of PhD candidates and junior researchers. It is open to all PhD candidates and junior researchers working in Luxembourg as well as to Luxembourgish PhD candidates and young researchers abroad.

The number of young researchers and PhD candidates in Luxembourg has considerably grown over recent years. Their contribution in shaping the country’s academic landscape is thus considerable.

However, the concerns and interests of PhD candidates and junior researchers remained largely unheard. LuxDoc was thus born out of the need to create a representative body which would allow PhD candidates and junior researchers to engage in ongoing scientific and political debates.

For its members, LuxDoc wants to be a social as well as a scientific exchange platform.

Objectives of LuxDoc

The main objectives of LuxDoc are:

  • Represent and defend the interests of PhD candidates and young researchers in Luxembourg with regards to training, research and career perspectives
  • Collaborate with the respective authorities to improve studying and working conditions for PhD candidates
  • Develop and promote scientific culture in Luxembourg
  • Provide and create information on topics of interest for PhD candidates and junior researchers
  • Participate in ongoing political and scientific discussions
  • Contribute to develop policies regarding higher education and research in Luxembourg
  • Facilitate exchange and meetings of PhD candidates and Luxembourgish and international researchers
  • Organize cultural and scientific events for PhD candidates and young researchers
  • Support and assist future PhD candidates in their training
  • Provide career information for young researchers

LuxDoc is planning a number of cultural and social events to be organised throughout the year.
