    Goals / remit


After almost one and half decades of becoming established as the first independent non-for-profit university in Europe and being today a self governed community of scholars, the Isles Internationale Université (European Union) has been appointed to host the School of Doctoral Studies (EU) in Brussels, Belgium, and has been commanded to accomplish three fundamental missions:

1.Development and enhancement of elite doctoral studies’ programmes, with highest worldwide standards on academic and scientific cutting-edge research;

2.Enforcement of EU analogue quality standards on academic programmes developed by tuition institutions outside the EU area: (a) By evaluating academic methodology applied on learning programmes; (b) By providing full coaching and tutoring support to tuition institutions worldwide to upgrade, assure and maintain academic methodology quality levels on their way towards excellence; and (3) By awarding EUASC Seal (EU Analogue Standards Certification) at corresponding quality levels achieved at each evaluation point; and

3.Ensuring academic EU Analogue Standards by performing: (a) Academic Validation on degrees earned by students at recognised and/or certified tuition institutions located outside the EU area; (b) Double Degree awarding on degrees earned by students at recognised and/or certified tuition institutions located elsewhere the EU area; and (c) Degrees awarding on studies programmes developed by tuition institutions, once certification at higher quality levels on applied academic methodology is granted and after collaboration agreement has been executed for these purposes .

In order to achieve its missions, the Université has gathered some of the best minds in Europe, who have developed sate-of-the-art doctoral academic programmes, elite research and academic methodology, and cutting-edge technological tools, acting as permanent Staff and Faculty Members to strictly enforce this toolkit’s proper application on daily basis.


    Specific activities covered by the Register









The School of Doctoral Studies (European Union) is the first European academic community of self governed scholars set up to support investigator-driven frontier research.

Working in tandem with the EU bodies’ efforts, its main aim is to stimulate scientific excellence by supporting and encouraging the very best, truly creative scientists, scholars and engineers to be adventurous and take risks in their research. The scientists are encouraged to go beyond established frontiers of knowledge and the boundaries of disciplines.

As 'investigator-driven', or 'bottom-up' oriented, the SDS approach allows researchers to identify new opportunities and directions in any field of research, rather than being led by priorities set by politicians. This approach ensures that funds are channelled into new and promising areas of research with a greater degree of flexibility.

SDS sponsorships and grants are awarded through open competition to projects headed by starting and established researchers, irrespective of their origins; the sole criterion for selection is scientific excellence. The aim is to recognise the best ideas, and retain and confer status and visibility to the best brains in Europe, while attracting talent from abroad.

In the long term, the SDS looks to strengthen and shape research methodology worldwide. This is done through high quality peer review, the establishment of international benchmarks of success, and the provision of up-to-date information on who is succeeding and why.

The hope is that these processes will help universities and other research institutions worldwide gauge their performance and encourage them to develop better strategies to establish themselves as more effective global players.

By challenging the brightest minds, the SDS expects that its grants will help to bring about new and unpredictable scientific and technological discoveries - the kind that can form the basis of new industries, markets, and broader social innovations of the future.

Ultimately, the SDS aims to make research base more prepared to respond to the needs of a knowledge-based society and provide with the capabilities in frontier research necessary to meet global challenges.
