What is the difference between the Individual Doctoral Programme and the Structured Doctoral Programme?

The individual doctorate offers more flexibility in proposing a research topic. In both the structured programme and the International Research Training Group "Temporalities of Future", research proposals must be developed along the research lines of the respective programme.

In contrast to the individual doctorate, the structured programmes already have a research structure and a body of members to which the applicant will belong if accepted. Similarly, structured programmes have both a curriculum and a defined programme of courses that members must attend.
