Adum, information system for the doctoral college and the doctoral schools of Université Paris Saclay since September 2014, is a management and communication tool, a collaborative tool and an online community. It creates a network between all stakeholders of doctoral training.

What happens to the data that are entered in Adum?

The operating principles are:

  • Doctoral candidates post the data concerning them in Adum.
  • These data, after validation during the registration process, are then shared between relevant services and stakeholders.
  • Moreover, some data after approval and validation, are used and transferred to other information systems to promote the doctorate, disseminate theses, etc.
