The annual Eucor Doctoral Colloquium in Educational Sciences (EDC) aims to provide a platform for Eucor doctoral students to present their ongoing research, engage in constructive discussions, and receive valuable feedback from peers, scholars, and experts in the field. The colloquium is intended to foster intellectual exchange and to promote scientific development. EDC will contribute significantly to advancing educational research, enhance the scholarly development and research skills of doctoral students, and create opportunities for participants to network with other doctoral students and established scholars in the Eucor region.

The colloquium will take place in spring 2024 at the three participating Eucor universities (Universität Basel, Université de Haute-Alsace, INSA Strasbourg, Université de Strasbourg): On each day, an expert in a subdiscipline of educational sciences will give a lecture, in order to give the doctoral students the opportunity to exchange, discuss, and develop their knowledge. This approach allows the doctoral students to have an educational experience across the border at another Eucor university, thus strengthening the Eucor region.
