LUOVA requires that all its student members receive high-quality supervision, mentoring, guidance and good advice throughout their doctoral studies. Supervisors affiliated to the doctoral programme must hold a docentship and/or a status of principal investigator at the university and be familiar with YEB's Code of Conduct. If you are interested in becoming a LUOVA supervisor, please contact LUOVA's coordinator. Alternatively, you will automatically become a LUOVA supervisor if your student is granted a PhD study right and he/she has chosen LUOVA as his/her doctoral programme.

More than 90 supervisors from 15 institutions are currently affiliated to LUOVA. For a complete list, please follow the links below.
