Hosted by Delft University of Technology, Delft, Netherlands

20 - 21 January 2016

  • Supervision is a central and defining element of doctoral education. It is through supervised research that doctoral candidates develop a research mindset, and it is the supervisor-supervisee relationship that determines the experience of undertaking a doctorate. It is therefore clear that few institutional policies can be implemented successfully without taking doctoral supervision and supervisors into account.

    With professional management of doctoral education, supervision has become much more than an apprenticeship for research, and supervisors have more responsibilities than previously. It is time to reflect on the nature of doctoral supervision, considering the main tasks of the supervisors and how these can be supported by institutions.

    Specifically, the workshop will look at the supervisor-supervisee relationship, institutional practices and how to engage with supervisors. It will be an opportunity to learn and exchange good practices with colleagues from across Europe.

    The workshop is aimed at vice-rectors, deans, heads of doctoral schools and research staff responsible for doctoral programmes.

    The workshop is only open to EUA-CDE member institutions.
