To build the DocEnhance network and online platform, develop and integrate transferable skills training into PhD education in Europe, and increase interaction with and exposure to the non-academic sector, DocEnhance will be following specific objectives (SOs):

Build a sustainable network of academic and non-academic actors
  • Our co-creation approach will actively involve actors in all parts of the project, increase knowledge transfer and cooperation
Address future skills needs of researchers through
  • a career-oriented curriculum in co-creation with stakeholders
  • a good practice recommendation for integrating the curriculum into existing PhD programmes
Improve the assessment of PhD graduate career paths and alumni networking with
  • a PhD graduate career-tracking survey
  • a good practice recommendation for implementing the survey
Ensure the transferable skills courses’ visibility and development by
  • Developing a good practice recommendation for the courses’ accreditation, documentation and evaluation
Increase mobility, interdisciplinarity and exposure to the non-academic sector in PhD candidate training by
  • Developing novel courses
  • Implementing pilot courses among partner universities and their non-academic networks
  • Developing a good practice recommendation for involving the non-academic sector in PhD education
Establish a dynamic, adaptable and sustainable online platform, the DocEnhance Platform,
  • for building and maintaining the network and community,
  • for sharing of the developed DocEnhance OERs
Ensure active use of the developed resources beyond the project lifetime
  • By providing capacity building, dissemination and exploitation of outcomes for stakeholders outside the consortium
