EURECA-PRO Doctoral Programme

Benefit from the EURECA-PRO Alliance

Interested in topics of climate change, sustainability, responsible consumption and production?

Why should you consider Responsible Consumption and Production in your research topic?

Responsible Consumption and Production (RCP) is defined as one of the most important themes of Planet Earth and Mankind for today and the future. The time spent during your doctoral research and studies is a once-in-a-lifetime experience with lasting and sustained benefits for your future career. This global significance is reflected in the identification of RCP as the 12th Sustainable Development Goal of the United Nations’ Global Goals in 2015. Researching a specific issue or topic within this theme enables you to become an expert member of a scientific community with a high global impact. The time spent during your doctoral research and studies is a once-in-a-lifetime experience with lasting and sustained benefits for your future career.
