Doctoral​ ​Training​ ​Working​ ​Group​ ​is​ ​looking​ ​for​ ​new​ ​members

Dear delegates,

Do you or your national associations have an interest​ ​to​ ​support​ ​and​ ​promote​ ​good practices​ ​in​ ​doctoral​ ​training​ ​in​ ​Europe?​ If​ ​yes,​ ​please​ ​join​ ​our​ ​Doctoral​ ​Training Working​ ​Group​ ​(DTWG).

Eurodoc working groups serve as a platform for addressing specific topics relevant for doctoral candidates and junior researchers. Through our Doctoral Training working group, we offer access to the Eurodoc network, a working experience in highly-international environment, and the possibility to contribute to discussions concerning EU policy-making and implementation of doctoral training in Europe. Besides developing their knowledge about doctoral training, our members have the chance to develop and/or improve their skills in inter-cultural communication, group work, networking, organisational work, and time management, to name just a few.

Our Doctoral Training working group is currently working on:

  • mapping and monitoring doctoral education systems across Europe with emphasis on doctoral training,
  • developing guidelines for choosing and documenting transferable skills and competences valuable for early career researchers,
  • formulating an Eurodoc policy paper addressing the purpose and value of the doctorate.

We are also open to your ideas about what is relevant to look at when focusing on doctoral
training across Europe.

If you are interested in joining our Doctoral Training working group, please send an email to our coordinator, Eva Hnatkova eva.hnatkova [at] eurodoc.net, or contact directly the group at doctoral-training [at] eurodoc.net.

* Who can join our working group: delegates of Eurodoc, members from national associations or or anybody with an interest in doctoral education: early career researchers, supervisors, researchers, administrators, leaders in higher education, decision-makers, policy-makers etc.

Eva Hnatkova

Coordinator of Doctoral training WG
