  • The ETN „Improving the Quality of Care in Europe“ contains an ambitious research & training programme for ESRs who would like to obtain an excellent profile in health economics with particular focus on the quality of care.
  • Each PhD thesis will focus on one of six dimensions of health care quality as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO): effectiveness; safety; efficiency; access; equitability; and acceptability.
  • The IQCE programme offers highly competitive funding and working conditions. Successful candidates will receive a salary in accordance with the Marie Sklodowska Curie regulations for early stage researchers. The exact salary will be confirmed upon appointment and is dependent on the country correction factor (to allow for the difference in cost of living in different EU Member States). The salary includes a living allowance, a mobility allowance and a family allowance (if married).
  • The IQCE programme provides ESRs with an opportunity to complete academic and industrial secondments (up to nine months and two months respectively). Academic secondments to partner universities are intended to foster a closer exchange of ideas among ESRs. Industrial secondments with industrial partners will facilitate the policy relevance of research topics and exchanges between research and practice.
