With the aim of collaborating and promoting education and research in Tourism in Spain, which is consolidated as one of the most relevant sectors from an economic and social point of view, the Interuniversity Doctorate program in Tourism comes about from the coordination and cooperation between research teams with experience in the scientific-social knowledge of tourism and in accredited training programs, including doctoral programs currently existing in the 12 participating universities.
This cooperation framework is based on the Interuniversity Network of Postgraduate Studies in Tourism (REDINTUR), made up of 28 Universities with postgraduate studies in Tourism, which has been qualified in the National Tourism Plan 2012-2015 of the Ministry of Energy, Industry and Tourism, within the Talent and Entrepreneurship section as a strength, highlighting its operation and education programs in Tourism.
The intended approach is based on the analysis of the relationships between territories and resources, the complementarity of which would allow opening new perspectives and relationships between tourism agents located in a specific geographical area, whose cooperation could bring innovation processes, while managing to improve social, environmental and economic competitiveness. This system of interaction, relationships and flow of knowledge, in which the public and the private converge, makes innovation a key concept of this Program.
The criteria for access to the Doctorate program are detailed in the following section, and are those established by law for this purpose. Therefore, any candidate meeting these criteria would have legal access to the program.
In terms of abilities, the recommended entry profile refers to students with the ability to understand and solve problems in the field of companies, organizations and tourist destinations, as well as the ability to assess the behavior of economic agents in this sector of activity. Likewise, knowledge of data analysis and planning tools and techniques will be very useful to carry out the program.
In relation to the languages appropriate to the entry profile, they will be those that are official in the universities that make up this Doctoral Program in Tourism, and in which the student is enrolled.
In general, in order to access an official doctoral program, it will be necessary to have the official Spanish Bachelor's degrees, or their equivalent, and University Master's degrees, or their equivalent, provided that at least 300 ECTS credits have been passed in the set of these two teachings.
Likewise, those who are in any of the cases included in article 6.2 of RD 99/2011 may access the program.
The general admission criterion is the presentation of a proposal for a doctoral thesis project, related to any of the research teams existing in the doctoral program, in which there is a description of the objectives, justification of the assignment to a line of research, methodology, expected results and resources necessary for its preparation, proposed thesis tutor and director, and report of the proposed thesis director.
The Committee will assess the affinity of the proposal to the Doctoral Program, its viability and scientific interest, and the availability of research staff with permanent ties to the requested University, and accredited research experience to tutor the thesis in the line of research selected by the candidate.
The specific admission criteria established by the Academic Committee of the Doctoral Program are based on the merit and ability of the applicants, in accordance with their academic records for the Bachelor's and Master's degrees and their Curriculum vitae.
The following scale is established for access to the doctoral program:
Likewise, the 12 Universities participating in the program offer information, accessible through web portals, in which information is provided regarding the specific requirements for admission or access to the doctorate.
* In the case of non-European diplomas: "apostille" in documents issued in countries that have signed the Hague Convention or legalization through diplomatic channels, in other cases.
**If the documentation has not been issued in Spanish, it must be accompanied by the corresponding official sworn translation.

Students who access the doctoral program in Tourism from the master's degrees that give direct access will not need to do any type of educational complements, unless they want to take them on a voluntary basis.
In the event that students lack the complete prior training required in the program, after admission and enrollment, they will need to take specific educational supplements. Thus, the Academic Committee of the program must decide which educational supplements are appropriate for each student, for which he/she may use subjects from the Bachelor's Degree in Tourism and/or the Official Master's Degrees (up to a maximum of 18 ECTS credits) that grant direct access to this PhD Program. In any case, these supplements will be mandatory for those students who access the program with only a graduate degree of 300 ECTS credits or more, which does not include research credits in their curriculum.
Students from master's degrees in the branches of Social and Legal Sciences and Arts and Humanities, not specialized in training in tourism, must necessarily take specific educational complements defined in the following section:
For those students who have studied master's degrees in the branch of Engineering and Architecture, the academic committee of the doctorate will rule on the educational complements that will be necessary to take from those indicated above.
The completion of these supplements will be simultaneous to enrollment in academic tutelage in the program. In this case, students must enroll in these supplements and, in addition, formalize the enrollment of academic supervision in the program. However, the educational supplements must be completed within a maximum period of 3 consecutive semesters for full-time students, and 5 for part-time students.
The educational activities can be multidisciplinary or specific, and do not necessarily require their structuring in ECTS credits.
The universities that are members of the program will carry out an offer of specific activities aimed at training students and will consist of research seminars, conferences, participation in conferences and promoting mobility and internationalization of research.
This Program contemplates the mobility of students between the 12 participating universities in order to be able to carry out the educational activities.
From the students' perspective, it is essential to try to identify the program and lines of work included, in order to select the most appropriate for their professional and research interests. In this sense, it is essential to provide information on the research teams associated with each line, which is facilitated by consulting the relative web pages, which contain projects, publications and researchers.

In each academic year, until the reading of the thesis, the student must renew the registration within the established period.
The Doctoral Commission can also be asked annually for partial exemptions from the doctoral fees for doctoral students who actively collaborate in Nebrija research groups, among others.
The Interuniversity Doctorate Program in Tourism is structured around 5 lines of research. These lines have been structured based on the academic and research coherence of the different teams and competitive research projects linked to the Program:
A scale applicable to publications is established, so that the doctoral student obtains at least one point for the doctoral thesis being admitted for processing:
According to the data analyzed, in the current doctoral program, employability has been high, reaching 80%. All the positions obtained have been related to teaching and/or research, specifically university professors and research technicians.
Collaborative Economy was the central theme at the Tourism Week held at Nebrija University's Madrid-Princesa Campus, with the participation of experts from the sector.
