Top Doctoral Degrees in Agricultural Science in Europe 2019/2020
A PhD, also known as a Doctor of Philosophy degree, is a doctorate awarded by a university to the academic who has met all necessary qualifications and can now be considered a doctor in his or her academic field.
Students who want to work the land and soil in a variety of capacities may want to take classes in agricultural science. This area encompasses a wide variety of topics such as food and soil sciences as well as animal care.
Europe is the sixth largest continent and includes 47 countries and assorted dependencies, islands and territories. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.

The International Ph.D. Programme in Agrobiodiversity is aimed at the enhancement of human resource capacities in the use and management of genetic variation in agricultural and natural systems, in order to improve the sustainability of agricultural systems and the conservation of genetic resources for the well-being of present and future generations.
The Programme is structured into two curricula:
Curriculum A - Plant genetic resources;
Curriculum B - Functional biodiversity in agroecosystems.
Research areas will include the analysis of:
Genetic variation in single genes and entire genomes of agricultural and forestry plants and their wild relatives;
Mechanisms that control the variability in genes and/or groups of genes, as those involved in resistance to pathogens and/or pests and tolerance to environmental factors;
Role of functional biodiversity in maintaining genetic diversity, including evolution and co-evolution of pests/pathogens and host plants;
Role of functional diversity, including interactions between pests/ pathogens/weeds and domesticated/volunteer/wild plants, in agroecosystem health;
Plant and crop physiology, including plant stress physiology and post-harvest physiology:
Options for applying the acquired knowledge, as a prerequisite for crop improvement, crop protection, sustainable crop/agroforestry management and multifunctional land use.

The Ph.D. Programme in “Agrobiosciences” is a three-year program characterized by an interdisciplinary connotation and designed for highly qualified and motivated students who wish to acquire the research and analytical skills of the international scientific community and to acquire the skills of professional academic research to work in government agencies, financial institutions, international agencies, private companies in economics.
The Ph.D. Programme in “Agrobiosciences” consists of the following curricula:
Genomics and Crop Science (Plant Biotechnology; Plant Genetics; Plant Physiology; Plant Genomics; Crop Sciences; Advanced technologies in Horticulture; Crop production and quality) Agriculture, Environment and Landscape (Multifunctional and sustainable agriculture, Organic and integrated agriculture, Crop production and quality; Agroecosystem management and functional biodiversity; Landscape Agronomy; Multicriteria analysis of food and non-food cropping systems; Agro-environmental comparison of cropping systems; Agriculture-territory-landscape)...

The Programme PhD in Agricultural and Forestry Research Is an official university degree of multidisciplinary character that offers to the student the possibility to choose between a wide range of subjects related to the agrarian and forestry production of Galicia and the Atlantic biogeographic region of Europe.
Participants in the program are researchers from two centers of the University of A Coruña (Institute of Geology and Faculty of Sciences) and four departments of the University of Santiago de Compostela (Plant Production, Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Plant Physiology and Botany).
The objective of this program is to train trained experts in agrarian, forestry and agroforestry research. The skills acquired are aimed at improving the production and the sustainability of the environment....

The purpose of this Ph.D. program is to train a new generation of researchers - knowledgeable and highly competitive - who can contribute their work to scientific research about the environment and mountain agriculture to the advantage of the territory in which they operate, in constant communication and exchange with their university colleagues in national and international research centers.
The three-year program focuses on the study of biotic and abiotic resources, energy efficiency in forestry agriculture, renewable energy, the impact of climate change and quality of agricultural products. Our faculty applies an interdisciplinary scientific approach and focuses on the theme of sustainability, two features that are shared by both our teaching and research....
