The Project

DocEnhance’s journey started in January 2020, when the project was kicked off in beautiful and vibrant Tromsø. The project, funded under the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commission, aims at improving PhD graduates’ integration in the non-academic sector. 

To achieve this, we are developing transferable skills courses and a recommended PhD curriculum for Higher Education Institutions. The DocEnhance platform will provide a space for all academic and non-academic actors to connect and access a wide range of crowdsourced open educational resources.

Enhancing skills intelligence and integration into existing PhD programmes by providing transferable skills training through an open online platform

DocEnhance aims to enhance transferable skills intelligence and integration into existing PhD programmes by i) involving the non-academic sector in developing a more employment and innovation-oriented curriculum for PhD programmes, ii) facilitating work-based learning and business-education partnerships through developing PhD courses, and iii) tracking of PhD graduate career paths. The major outputs of the project are a recommended transferable skills curriculum for PhD programmes, a novel course concept and material, and an open access career-tracking survey. The project will focus on transferable skills, as these skills facilitate the transition into employment and are widely applicable, regardless of scientific field and chosen career path. All project outputs will be provided as freely available Open Educational Resources through an online platform, the DocEnhance Platform. This platform will function as a comprehensive, user-friendly and equal access point for transferable skills intelligence and training in research education for researchers in all career stages, as well as a community and networking site, designed to live beyond the project lifetime.
