Member of academic staff who supervises the work of a doctoral candidate jointly with the supervisor. May or may not be connected to the same university as the supervisor.

Joint supervision of a doctoral candidate affiliated to one university, by academics connected to one or more other universities. Contrary to a joint or double doctorate, a cotutelle ultimately results in one diploma by the university to which the candidate is primarily affiliated and in which the candidate completes doctoral research and a (joint) training programme when so required. Arguably, the term cotutelle may pose strong overlaps with that of a double doctorate. Indeed, in some Member States joint supervision leading to multiple diplomas is considered a cotutelle. For the purpose of this report, however, the distinction between a cotutelle and a double doctorate as reflected in these definitions applies.
