Doing A PHD in Physics

In 2019, 15 students were accepted onto the European PhD programme "SAGEX". They have three years to write their PhDs in theoretical physics. These three years will shape their future. All of the students agreed to take part in this project and to document their scientific lives on film. All of the media including music were made by participants.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 764850 (SAGEX)
