Join the EUA-CDE Annual Meeting “Digitalisation: A game changer for doctoral education?” via Facebook live today at 12.30

15 June 2017

The EUA Council on doctoral education will be live on Friday 16 June, from 12.30 to 14.00 (CEST) during the plenary session on “New Skills in Doctoral Education and Research Training”.

The session will focus on how the doctoral schools, which are uniquely positioned to respond to the demand for new skills in a digital society, can shape the professional capacities of highly skilled doctorate holders. The speakers will reflect on the needs of a fast-changing society and highlight the role doctoral education plays in universities by helping society to address the challenges of digitalisation.

The panel will be chaired by Lesley Wilson, EUA Secretary General. A replay of the session will remain available on the EUA Facebook page.
