The Thesis Committee (TC) is responsible for regularly monitoring and reviewing the progress made by the student throughout his PhD. It consists of 3 members:
1) The PhD student´s Supervisor;
2) A senior researcher from a research Unit outside the host institution;
3) A third researcher chosen by the Student .
The TC will be called to act and guide the student in the decisive stages of his/her PhD, namely upon initial project presentation; by the beginning of the 2nd year as first results begin to appear; during data preparation for submission to a relevant Journal and finally, before submission of the Thesis draft to the Faculty.
