7th EUA-CDE Annual Meeting
Doctoral Education: Thinking globally, acting locally

Hosted by University of Liverpool, Liverpool, United Kingdom
19-20 June 2014

 

What are the global trends in doctoral education, and how can and should universities react? This is the main question that the 7th Annual Meeting of the EUA Council for Doctoral Education will address.

Doctoral education is becoming a global endeavour. Universities and their research activities are becoming increasingly intertwined across continents, the number of doctoral graduates has risen drastically over the last decade, and global mobility has reached the point where some universities, or whole national systems, have close to half of their doctoral candidates coming from abroad.
Investments in research are rising and so is the competition for resources, not least for talented doctoral candidates. Meanwhile, universities and researchers are looking for partners all over the world to strengthen their research and to gain access to resources such as funding, talent and infrastructures.

The event will examine how universities deal with this situation and the local implications of global trends. In addition, the Annual Meeting will provide European universities with an insight into doctoral education in other parts of the world as well as give non-European universities an opportunity to learn more about European doctoral education.

The Annual Meeting of the EUA Council for Doctoral Education is the largest gathering of all stakeholders in the field of doctoral education in Europe. It will provide ample opportunities for open discussions of challenges and opportunities between colleagues from all over Europe and beyond. There will be learning opportunities for newcomers to the field of doctoral education as well as a master class for the “veterans” of the field.

The conference aims specifically at opening discussions between different stakeholders such as university leaders, researchers, political decision-makers, funding organisations, quality assurance agencies and all others interested in the development of doctoral education.

Registration will open in April 2014.
