Cooperation among organisations and institutions in doctoral education
In previous posts, we already mentioned the importance of a transformative transition in doctoral education as well as the new skills that should be implemented in doctoral programmes (open science, open innovation, entrepreneurship…). But, how do we manage that change?
To begin with, collaboration among institutions are essential. It is crucial to set the focus on active communication between the organisations and to bring positive and long-lasting results on the stakeholders, on the policy systems involved, and on the persons participating directly or indirectly in the organized activities.
A great example of this target is Link EDU-RES (Linking Education and Research), an Erasmus+ project funded by the European Commission. Its main aim is to expand doctoral education internationally and establish collaborative and interactive frameworks for its operation. In particular, it focuses on “laying the ground for creating joint programmes at doctorate level in the YERUN network of research universities”.
If you want to know more about this project, do not miss its Staff Week event: “International cooperation in doctoral education: Findings and the way forward” (27th to 30th March). This meeting is particularly designed for academic and administrative staff who have responsibilities over doctoral programmes and/or internalization.
