The CIHEAM-IAMM and its doctoral platform provide the supervision of doctoral/PhD theses on a range of topics from the field of social and economic sciences, agricultural sciences, geopolitics, and sustainable production and consumption. This platform can supervise around twenty PhDs, jointly tutored by other Mediterranean countries. Every year it also offers 30 young researchers the opportunity to develop their research project over the course of a short scientific stay (one month on average) at the CIHEAM-IAMM. The LAMES also gives PhD students and young researchers the possibility to have their work published in science journals or collective books published by the CIHEAM. Between 2008 and 2013, 46% of CIHEAM-IAMM publications in science journals were co-written with Mediterranean researchers and PhD students who came to the LAMES.
