Doctoral Studies

We offer Doctoral training, with a solid scientific scopus and enabled PhD tutors, under PhD programmes from our core University’s PhD School of the UVic-UCC and also in collaboration with a vast network of Universities at national and international level. The objective of our research group is to achieve excellence in “Research through design” by acknowledging design and engineering not only as a field of research in its own right, but also as a transdisciplinary research tool being intrinsically in dialogue with other branches of knowledge.


Elisava Research has managed to gain recognition for this type of research as a valid research discipline, having been officially designated as an Consolidated Research Group by Generalitat de Catalunya.

As University, we offer the full spectrum for developing an academic professional path, from undergraduate degrees, official graduate studies, and PhD studies. The thesis topics fall into the expertise of our Research Groups, Creative Think and Do Thank, Materials & Wellbeing and Phygital Transformations.

We open a limited number of Elisava Research Fellowships (Elisava Research, European competitive projects, or Industrial PhDs). The open positions are communicated through our channels. We also welcome PhDs that are self-financed or financed by other entities. Should you be interested in undertaking a PhD, please fill in the form below.
