Transferable skills in doctoral education: Experience from the DocEnhance project
EuroDoc Conference 2021
14 – 15 July, Prague and online
DocEnhance is pleased to share the project’s experience at the EuroDoc’s Annual Conference on “Improving Doctoral Training in Europe”
Nowadays, early-career researchers face insufficient knowledge about
Open Science, research ethics and integrity. Support in matters of
mental health, career development, and the tracking of PhD holders is
also often lacking among European higher education institutions. These
issues have a profound influence on the efficiency and quality of
doctoral training and warrant both discussion and understanding.
The improvement of efficiency and quality of doctoral training, as well as the conditions and support offered to doctoral candidates are also amongst the priorities of the Ministry for Higher Education in the Czech Republic, as defined by the Strategic Plan for the period from 2021. The Strategic Plan also aims to tackle the problem of excessively long studies and the low success rate of doctoral candidates.
These objectives entail the following questions: What good practices exist for doctoral training in Europe? Which aspects make for quality doctoral training and how to implement them? And how can we boost career prospects after awarding the PhD?
To answer these questions, the Eurodoc conference is divided into six topic areas:
#1: Doctoral training across Europe
#2: Professionalization of supervision
#3: Career development of Early-Career Researchers
#4: Implementing Open Science
#5: Promoting Research Integrity
#6: Mental health and work-life balance
We’ll be sharing the experience from the DocEnhance project on transferable skills in doctoral education on 14 July, 10:00 – 11:30 am CET.
The event is free of charge and will be held in a hybrid form for a maximum of participants to attend!
