Around the Caspian: a Doctoral Training for Future Experts in Development and Cooperation with Focus on the Caspian Region


The main goal of this project is to train the next generation of experts on the Caspian region in order to establish, and make sustainable, a network of excellence.

This will be achieved through an integrated PhD programme on the Caspian that boosts the researchers’ theoretical, empirical and administrative skills, a thing that will make them extremely competitive for employment in both academic and non-academic sectors but also confident and knowledgeable enough to start their own projects.

The training will enhance the research skills of the ESRs while also giving them a first-hand experience with a partner operating in a different environment, thus learning how to apply their skills to different fields and sectors.

We expect our network and training to become a leading voice on issues related to the Caspian region both in academia and other sectors.
