The current Doctorate Program in Organic Synthesis by the University of Alicante (RD 99/2011) was positively verified by the Council of Universities in 2013, implemented in the 2013-2014 academic year and modified with a positive evaluation in 2015. La Agència Valenciana d ' Avaluació i Prospectiva issued in 2018 a favorable report on the follow-up of the doctoral program and, in 2019, the Council of Universities has resolved to renew the accreditation of said program. The teaching and research staff of this report is made up of 14 members, of which 10 are University Professors and 2 University Professors. The scientific production of the research teams involved in this program in the last 5 years is summarized in 23 doctoral theses, some 200 articles in indexed journals, numerous communications to national and international conferences, and three invention patents. All of the above highlights the academic relevance and high scientific productivity derived from the doctoral program in Organic Synthesis.
Regarding graduates of the doctoral program, it should be noted that the vast majority are working in related industries or doing postdoctoral stays. The interest on the part of society in the development of the professional activity of these people lies in the fact that they are capable of enhancing the scientific, technological and innovation components, which is fundamental today in any industrial activity carried out in an environment dominated by globalization and offshoring. The members of the research teams that appear in this report also participate in teaching the Master in Medical Chemistry at the University of Alicante, which allows students to have more direct contact with industry professionals through the teaching of seminars in two of the Master's subjects: "Seminars in Biosciences" and "Industrial Pharmaceutical Chemistry". This contact with the industry is maintained in the doctoral program through the activity "Research Seminars and Workshops".
Regarding the demand for the doctoral program by students, if we stick to the data of the last 5 years, the 23 doctoral theses were defended by Spanish students, 22 of which came from the University of Alicante and 21 agreed to the doctorate program through the Master in Medical Chemistry of the same university. Currently, of 19 students, 5 are from other countries (Romania, Algeria, USA and Japan; approximately 25% of the total), 13 were trained at the University of Alicante and 14 accessed through the Master in Medical Chemistry of said University. It can be concluded that, currently, there is a notable interest on the part of students from other countries in pursuing the doctoral program in Organic Synthesis at the University of Alicante.
It is worth highlighting the integration of the doctoral program in the CAMPUSHABITAT5U project, for which the University of Alicante, together with the rest of the Universities that make up the Valencian Public University System (SUPV), obtained, in the 2011 call, the mention of Campus of International Excellence.
The objective of CAMPUSHABITAT5U is to promote and stimulate a process of intelligent, sustainable and inclusive growth based on knowledge, innovation, creativity, resource efficiency, employability and social and territorial cohesion, its essential characteristics being aggregation - insofar as it configures a Campus in the Valencian Community that combines efforts and shares knowledge−, specialization - insofar as it develops a project of excellence unique in the Spanish state in the field of "Habitat and Territory" -, interdisciplinarity - since it is It is about a multisectoral and multidisciplinary campus, based on the interaction of different economic sectors and multiple disciplines - and internationalization - inasmuch as it makes the international teaching and research dimension visible, attracts talent and consolidates the network of alliances.
CAMPUSHABITAT5U currently has teams and activities of recognized prestige that have been developing projects of international excellence with innovative projection and socio-economic impact on Habitat and Territory. Thus, the following data should be highlighted as of 2016: the integration into the project of 65 doctoral programs, 750 students, about 100 R&D groups, 39 University Institutes, 3 Mixed Centers with the CSIC, 8 Community Technological Institutes Valenciana, 36 Chairs, 18 spin-offs (generated in four years), 40 patents applied for, 36 annual technology license contracts and more than 5000 researchers and support staff in the Science Parks.
Finally, it should be noted that CAMPUSHABITAT5U develops its specialization strategy through 4 areas of action in Habitat and Territory (Building; Home; Planning and Management; Social Space), which allows promoting advanced research through collaborative interdisciplinary research and interuniversity, attracting and promoting highly qualified research talent and facilitating the development of research projects in which all branches of knowledge intersect.

Students must hold an undergraduate degree in Chemistry, Pharmacy or Chemical Engineering and a Master's degree comprising a majority of courses in the Organic Chemistry area.
Students are recommended to have the following skills and background knowledge: (a) general aspects of the terminology and nomenclature in Organic Chemistry; (b) properties of organic and organometallic compounds; (c) types of reactions and main routes of synthesis in Organic Chemistry; (d) principles, procedures and techniques used for determining, identifying and characterising organic compounds; (e) being familiar with the material and basic techniques employed in an Organic Chemistry laboratory.
Spanish and English are recommended as working languages (level B1).
This PhD degree offers 10 places for new full-time students. Exceptionally, part-time students may be admitted after each case is assessed by the PhD Degree Academic Committee.
PhD graduate profile
After completing the PhD Degree in Organic Synthesis, PhD graduates should have gained cross-curricular and specific teaching, research and industrial skills. On the one hand, PhDs will be able to undertake postdoctoral stays for further training, with a view to pursuing a teaching or research career at the research departments of public or private centres. On the other hand, PhDs can choose a professional career, which will allow them to design, develop and manage projects in a variety of industrial sectors related to Organic Synthesis.
