Water, sustainability and development (to be introduced in course 2017-2018)
The Doctoral Program on Water, Sustainability and Development is framed as one of the strategic guidelines of the Water Campus (Galician Government Council Agreement, dated 21 November 2013, authorising the beginning of the specialisation process leading to the transformation of the Ourense Campus of the University of Vigo into the Water Campus, and the Cooperation Protocol between the Galician Government and the University of Vigo for the implementation and development of the Strategic Plan, dated 14 March 2014).
The Program includes six areas of specialisation (Water Management, Social and Educational Innovation, Environment, ICTs, Heritage and Cultural Tourism and Food) which fall into the following three thematic research blocks: WATER, SUSTAINABILITY AND DEVENLOPMENT.
Royal Decree 99/2011 establishes that the Doctoral Program Academic Committee (CAPD) is responsible for setting up, updating, coordinating and ensuring the quality of Doctoral Programs, as well as for improving research and training and authorising the submission of dissertations.
The structure, make-up, competences and operation of Academic Committees is governed by the Doctoral studies regulation of the University of Vigo (approved by the Governing Board on 20/07/2012).
