CogNes is a full-time four-year PhD programme in English dedicated to providing well-rounded training in cognitive neuroscience

The key feature of CogNes programme is a flexible approach to the individual needs of the participants, both through the selection of specialist courses corresponding to their needs, as well as the emphasis on close cooperation between the PhD student and their supervisor. The proposed courses will enable PhD students to acquire practical skills in the field of data analysis, writing scientific papers, developing presentation skills and more.

All CogNes students will be granted monthly scholarships of 1800 PLN. Additionally, the students will have the opportunity to receive travel grants to cover conference trips and short-term internships.

Graduates of the CogNes PhD programme will be a young scientist with knowledge in the field of cognitive neuroscience, specifically in the area covered by one’s PhD dissertation. They will have skills in the field of scientific research, data analysis and interpretation as well as their presentation during scientific conferences and in papers published in the world renown magazines. A graduate of the program is prepared for undertaking scientific work in research centers and universities in Poland and abroad.

Project’s main goal is to create and implement high-quality international studies in the field of cognitive sciences for 12 students at the Faculty of Philosophy of the Jagiellonian University (2019-2023).

Project effects will be measured by:

  • a total number of graduates of doctoral programs co-financed from ESF funds
  • a total number of students who improved their competences in the field of cognitive-social-neuroscience and methodology of science through participation in courses launched as a part of the CogNes programme in 2019/2020;
  • a total number of students who have improved competences in the field of cognitive-social-neuroscience and transferable competences through participation in courses launched  as apart of the CogNes programme in 2020/2021
  • a total number of people who improved their competences in the field of cognitive-social-neuroscience by taking classes launched as part of the CogNes programme in 2021/2022.

The CogNeS programme was launched thanks to the European Union and its social policy. Total project cost: 1 619 195,28 PLN,  incl. 1 570 618,37 PLN European Funds Support.
