DIAPHORA is a joint European research and training platform for collaborative research on the nature of disagreement. The consortium (consisting on seven European universities) plans to recruit roughly 14 predoctoral fellows from October 2016 until September 2019. Positions would be advertised internationally. The internships (1 to 3 months) are meant to provide the fellows with insights into work contexts outside academic philosophy and to provide them with suitable work experience (in the context of general management, fundraising, outreach activities, communication and dissemination of results).

Innovative training networks bring together universities, research centres and companies from different countries worldwide to train a new generation of researchers. One of the project proposals is the European Training Networks (ETN). The aim is for the researcher to experience different sectors and develop transferable skills by working on joint research projects.
