CLIKS is a training programme for doctoral students at UPF with the aim of promoting professional research and development.
This set of cross-disciplinary training activities is aimed at students from any doctoral program. It runs in parallel with the development of the doctoral thesis, while also aiming to motivate and inspire students in their teaching roles.

CLIKS is dedicated to the design and implementation of a training programme which creates a meeting point for doctoral students from all scientific areas within UPF, thereby opening up the way for future interdisciplinary interactions and promoting networking.


Through its courses, CLIKS aims to facilitate the acquisition of skills in the following areas:

  • Professional career development.
  • Written and oral dissemination of scientific research, from its publication and dissemination in specialised media to sharing information among the general public.
  • Digital skills.
  • Skills transfer between scientific, educational and social disciplines.

CLIKS is a publicly-funded programme. Given that course registration is free and places are limited, a strict cancellation and withdrawal policy will be applied in order to take full advantage of the resources allocated.
