  •  Study and analyse the employment conditions of PhD candidates and ECRs in Europe and create a policy paper on employment conditions.

Analyse and report on the postdoctoral survey carried out by Eurodoc in 2018-2019, addressing the working conditions (Project: “Eurodoc Postdoc Survey 2018-2019”)
