EUA-CDE Annual Meeting: last chance to register
12 May 2016
Time is running out to register for the 9th EUA Council for Doctoral Education (EUA-CDE) Annual Meeting entitled “Doctoral Education – a dilemma of quality and quantity?” The event will take place on 16 and 17 June 2016 at the Rovira i Virgili University in Tarragona, Spain. Those wishing to participate have until 3 June to register.
The conference will look at how universities are ensuring the quality and relevance of doctoral education today, and what it will take to continue ensuring it in the future - in spite of the challenges posed by the increasing number of doctoral candidates.
Contemporary and future societies need persons trained through research to cope with their increasing complexity, and this makes doctoral education more than relevant. But is the quality of provision adequate, and are the graduates well prepared for the diverse careers, opportunities, and challenges that await them?
The conference will consider what these developments and challenges will mean for doctoral education in the years ahead.
